Mobile phones

Please remember that mobile phones remain the single biggest focus for street crime. If you choose to bring a mobile phone to school then you should be aware of the following points:

    • As with other expensive items, the School does not accept any responsibility for mobile phones brought onto the school site.
    • Mobile phones on the school premises should be switched off and out of sight from the start of the day when you arrive on site - 'Off and away - during the day'.
    • Mobile phones on the school site may be confiscated at any time by a member of staff if they consider confiscation to be appropriate.
    • If for any urgent reason you need to make a phone call during the school day you should go to the Admin Office to make a call on a school telephone.

 

valuables

Expensive equipment and large sums of money should not be brought into school. The School does not accept responsibility for the loss of student's property brought on site against the advice and rules of the school.

 

Drinks

We strongly encourage healthy eating and encourage you to drink water to quench thirst.  Fizzy and energy drinks are not sold in school. If you bring these drinks into school and try to drink them they will be confiscated.  Reusable water bottles can be filled from our water fountains or in the Restaurant, before school, at break time or at lunch time.

 

Confiscation policy

1) If a student is seen with a phone out during the school day, it will be immediately confiscated by a member of staff. The phone will be stored securely in the School Office and may be collected by the student at the end of the day.

2) If a student is seen with a phone for a second time during the academic year, it will be confiscated and kept in the school safe overnight. The phone can be collected by the student at the end of the following day. A behaviour point will also be issued.

3) If a phone is visible for a third/subsequent time during the academic year, it will be confiscated and kept in the school safe until it is collected by a parent on the following day. If a parent is unable to collect the phone, it will be returned to the student at the end of the week. Two behaviour points will be issued.

If a student’s phone is confiscated and he/she wishes to call home, the Office will happily facilitate such calls. In the unlikely event of a student refusing to hand over a phone, an immediate after-school detention will be issued for the following day. Depending upon the individual circumstances, the sanctions may be escalated.
