As agreed by governors and our Student Senate, please be aware that, although we encourage children to wear watches into school, we do not allow your child to wear a ‘smart’ watch, or any watch that has the same functionality as a mobile phone or PC, on the school site.
Additionally, can we remind parents that mobile phones are not permitted in school. The only exception to this ruling is when it has been agreed that a child is permitted to walk some distance to and from school, and the parent feels that they should have one for contact in an emergency. In this instance we request that we have this in writing prior to the arrangement commencing, where possible this phone should be a basic model and not a smartphone. On arrival, the phone should be handed to your child’s class teacher, who will return it at the end of the school day.
Please note: the school accepts no liability for loss or damage while on school premises, and if it has been found that a phone is being used inappropriately on school grounds, it will be confiscated.
The above stipulations are part of our safeguarding and child protection protocols and your compliance is requested for the safety and well-being of the whole school community.
Thank you in advance for you support.
Mr J DF Martin - Headmaster
