Year 5 & 6 Mobile Phone Parental Consent

Dear Parents and Carers,

Pupils in year 5 and 6 are only permitted  to bring a mobile phone to school to support safety issues if they come to school or leave independently. 

If you wish for your child to bring a phone into school, it is on the understanding that you and your child agree to the following:

  • All phones must be switched off during the school day.
  • It is not permitted to film or photograph anyone whilst on school property
  • The school cannot be held responsible for the security of any mobile phones, including loss or damage and they must be kept in children’s bags at all times during the school day.
  • If requested, content on the phone (e.g messages, emails, pictures, videos, sound filed etc) may be shown to a member of staff.

Misuse 

  • Appropriate action will be taken against anyone who is in breach of our guidelines.
  • In the case of any repeated misuse, the phone will be handed over to the parent or carer who will be required to visit the school by appointment in order to collect the phone.  If the misuse is serious it may lead to a total confiscation.  Imposition of other sanctions may be required, this could include exclusion.  In some serious cases the offence may have to be reported to the Police.

If you intend to allow your child to bring a mobile phone to school, please could you download and complete this form, which needs to be signed by you and your child to confirm your permission.
