You may bring your mobile phone to school but phones must be switched off during registration, class time and tutor time, unless their use is explicitly authorised by a teacher. Pupils are also not permitted to use the phone between classes.
If a mobile phone is seen or heard a warning may be given to the pupil and the phone should be switched off immediately. If there is evidence that you have used your phone it must be handed to a member of staff on request.
If a pupil is found using a mobile phone between classes (s)he will be sent immediately to reception to hand over his/her phone.
Any Phone handed over will be kept safely at reception until the end of the school day. In the event of persistent defiance of the rules in the use of mobile phones, parents will be contacted.
Any information received about the use of text messages or the camera/video function of any phone at any time in a manner liable to cause upset to any member of our community will result in sanctions being applied as set out in the School Discipline Policy. Such information may also be passed to the PSNI.
The school does not accept responsibility for the loss of phones.
