​Mobile Phones

We are finding increasingly that our older pupils in school have access to their own mobile phone. Where this is not the case, more often than not they are able to access mobile technology through the phones of older siblings, parents or other friends.

What we say…

It is up to individual parents to decide when they feel that their child is mature enough and responsible enough to handle the responsibilities, possible consequences and temptations that come from having a mobile phone. If your child has a modern ‘smart-phone’ then they have access to the whole world at their fingertips – good and bad.

We allow class 6 children to bring mobile phones with them to school. When arriving at school, they must hand in their phones into the office and pick it up at the end of the day. Any phones brought into school are done so at their owner’s risk.
