PERSONAL BELONGINGS

Mobile Phones

  • The school does not accept any responsibility for lost, stolen or damaged phones.
  • Phones must be turned off during the day. This includes break and lunchtime.
  • Mobile phones are not to be used in lessons, or between lessons unless clearly authorised by the teacher responsible for the class. Any breach of this rule will result in the phone being confiscated and safely stored at reception. On the first occasion, the student will have the opportunity to discuss the matter with a member of the senior leadership team and potentially retrieve it at the end of the day. On subsequent occasions, the phone may need to be collected by a parent/carer at a meeting at the end of the school day.  A record is kept so the confiscation of mobile phones is monitored.
  • Repeat offenders may be required to hand their device to their student support officer at the start of the day, or be asked not to bring a device to school.

I-pods, MP3 Players and other electrical items 

  • The school does not accept any responsibility for lost, stolen or damaged electrical devices.
  • If used during the school day they will be confiscated and kept safely in reception.

Students are responsible for their possessions.

In games lessons, and whenever else required, watches and money should be kept in lockers or handed in for safe keeping.
