Mobile Phones in School

Mobile phones and Smart watches


The school does not allow the use of mobile phones by pupils in school and we ask that children do not bring smart phones and/or phones with cameras or internet capabilities in to school under any circumstances.


In the interest of safeguarding we also do not allow smart watches in school for any reason.


For those of you that have children in Y5/Y6 and have given signed permission for your children to walk home from school unaccompanied, if you would like your child to have a phone with them while they do so, we ask that you provide a phone with no internet access or camera. These pay as you go phones are very cheap to buy (school staff take these type of phones with them on school trips). If your child needs to bring a phone to school for this reason, we ask that they keep the phone switched off and out of sight at all times during the school day. We cannot accept mobile phones being brought in to school for any other reason.
