Mobile Phones in School
Gladesmore Community School is aware that mobile devices are part of today's society, however, we do not want mobile phones to impact our pupils' learning. As a consequence, we have reviewed our policy on mobile phones in school, which is as follows:
- Pupils may bring mobile phones to school but all electronic equipment e.g. airpods, earphones, mobile phone etc, must be kept out of sight in corridors and classrooms.
- We do not want pupils to be distracted, so we ask that devices are turned off and put away when pupils are in lessons. Pupils should be aware that phones ringing or vibrating in lessons is a breach of this policy.
- If a pupil repeatedly breaches our mobile phone policy, this will result in the item being confiscated.
- Following confiscation, the device will have to be collected by a parent/carer. Please note that parents/carers will need to make an appointment to collect the device.
