Mobiles and Uniform
I hope this letter finds you well.
I am writing to give you advance notice that some of the flexibility around our expectations (that we allowed because of COVID) will stop after Half Term. This is with specific reference to the following:
Although coats can be worn over uniform to and from school, they should not be worn in classrooms unless the temperature falls below a comfortable level. Students wearing a coat to school should have a school jumper underneath so as they are warm enough in the school building once the coat is removed. A coat, casual sweatshirt or hoodie is not a replacement for a school jumper.
We do not allow the use of mobile phones inside the school building, unless a teacher specifically asks for students to use their mobile phone in a lesson for the purposes of learning. Whilst inside the school building students must make sure that their mobile phones are turned off and kept in bags. Students are able to use their mobile phones outside the school building during break and lunchtimes. Any phone seen inside the building will be confiscated, placed in a labelled bag in a locked safe and can be collected by the student at the end of the day. If a phone is confiscated on more than one occasion, you will be asked to come and collect the phone on your child’s behalf. If you need to contact your child urgently you should phone the school reception and a message will be passed on to the child.
Please can I take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your support.
