We recognise that parents, carers and pupils find phones an essential part of everyday life for a variety of reasons. We believe that it is important that we educate pupils to use their phones correctly and within our guidelines in preparation for their future roles. At Magdalen we allow our pupils to bring their mobile phones into school. However there are strict rules around their use.
Phones can only be used at morning break from 11.10am – 11.30am and at lunchtime from 1.35pm – 2.10pm.
At all other times they must be switched off and out of sight. They must not be used when walking between sites apart from at break and lunchtime.
If pupils are seen using their phone by a member of staff, or their phone is on other than at break and lunchtime the phone will be confiscated and the pupil will receive a sanction.
