Mobile Phone’s in School Guidance

Can we please draw your attention to the guidance that children are not allowed mobile phones in school.  Our Safeguarding and Child Protection Policy states:

“Children are forbidden to bring their own devices (mobile phones, tablets etc) to school. If a child does bring a device to school it will be confiscated (stored securely), parents informed and returned at the end of the school day – directly to parents if possible.”

This is for a number of reasons, including minimising the risk of  loss or damage, and most importantly for child protection purposes.
