Policy on Mobile Phone in the Academy

Into the new academic year we will continue to have an ongoing zero tolerance of students having their mobile phones/portable media devices switched on and/or visible whilst on the Academy premises. Students who are seen with their mobile phone/ portable media device will have them confiscated. We have consulted widely on this policy and have settled on it so as to allow students to have the devices with them for use on the way to and from school but at the same time create a positive, safe and healthy learning environment whilst in the Academy. Students should therefore switch the devices off on arriving at the Academy site and not take them out/ switch them back on until they leave the site after school. In the first instance confiscated devices will be returned at the end of the day. However, if students repeatedly breach this rule, we will reserve the right to only return a confiscated item to the student's parent/ carer. We have not developed this policy lightly, but have done so in order to protect the safety, welfare and learning environment for all students.
