Students will not be allowed to use their phone on Academy site. This is includes breaks and lunches. Mobile phones should not be seen or heard and if so will be confiscated in line with our current policy.
Please find a copy of the letter sent to all parents and carers, explaining the process and the reasons as to why this decision has been made. In addition please find the full Academy Policy and a FAQ guide.
