Mobile Phones Policy

Dear Parents and Carers

From Monday 20th March 2017, Pool Academy will not allow any mobile phone use during the school day.

If you wish for your child to carry a phone with them for their journeys to and from school, the expectation is that it is switched off and remains in their bag once they enter the school building.  

Should you need to contact your child during the school day, please use the standard procedure of phoning or emailing the school. This will allow us to support your child appropriately if the need arises.

As you are aware the school iPads are filtered whilst being used at school and at home.  We appreciate your support monitoring the use of all mobile devices.

We understand that there may be exceptional circumstances that mean an individual student may need to have access to their phone during the day.  If this is the case, please do get in touch with your child's form tutor, head of house or any member of the pastoral or senior leadership teams to discuss how we can achieve this.

If you have any concerns about how to safeguard your child’s use of mobile technology, please do not hesitate to contact us.  

Yours faithfully,

Mrs Zelma Hill
