Our school has a policy of students handing in their phones to the office at the beginning of the day and collecting them after school. There is no need for students to have a phone on them for learning, except in specific instances with teacher permission. Our policy is that phones will be confiscated, and held at the office for a parent to collect, if used at school without specific permission.
Unfortunately some students are not honouring this policy and are keeping their phones on them, and using them during the school day. This is not in keeping with our special character expectations and values.
We ask that all students with phones at school sign them in to the office. We would expect that our values of taking responsibility, honouring, and showing integrity are respected and modelled at school.
