Mobile phones are not to be used within the school building, i.e. they are to be switched off as soon as you enter the school grounds and may only be switched on after leaving the school grounds. This means that you can only use mobile phones outside the school.
If you choose to take a mobile phone to school, you must keep it in your bag, switched off and out of sight.
If you have a mobile phone out on the corridor or switched on, a member of staff will confiscate this and hand it in to student services where you can collect it at the end of the day.
If your phone is confiscated for a second time or more the phone will be kept in student services and returned when your Parent/Carer has come into school to pick this up.
