Mobile Phones and Other Electronic Items
The School discourages students bringing mobile phones and personal technology to school, and mobile phones are not to be used by students throughout the school day.
Mobile telephones that come to the attention of members of staff during normal school days will be immediately confiscated and will remain in safe-keeping until the end of day.
The School cannot accept liability for lost, damaged, or stolen devices and students who bring these items to school do so at their own risk.
Mobile telephones and electronic devices are not required on Primary School excursions. In the case of an emergency School administration staff will communicate with teachers, parents and caregivers.
When students are attending overnight camps, all mobile phones will be collected once students arrive at camp, and will be kept by the teacher for the duration of the camp. The only time mobile phones can be used are whilst travelling to and from the camp on the bus.
Smart watches and related devices must be switched to flight mode during the school day. Students are not permitted to use their smart watch or other device as a substitute for a mobile phone.
Devices that record images or sound must only be used for learning purposes. Devices found to contain inappropriate or offensive material will be confiscated and their owner’s parents/caregivers informed.
All documents and other content are to be free from inappropriate or offensive content and data sharing files. USB memory sticks or any other digital storage media that are found to contain inappropriate or offensive material will be confiscated and their owner’s parents/caregivers immediately informed.
