We are looking to review our mobile phone policy and would like to get your views around the use of mobile phones in school.  As a school we recognise that students need mobile phones to help them keep safe and that this is probably their main means of contact with you as parents and carers.  However within school we are noticing some lack of concentration, phones being used in classes and whilst walking between lesson, on stairwells etc. which is a real health and safety issue.  As a result of some of these concerns we want to find out what you think about our current policy and to indicate a preference of the proposals that have been included.    

Question Title

* 1. Does your child have a mobile phone?

Question Title

* 2. What apps do you use to contact your child by? (tick all that apply)

Question Title

* 3. Has your child ever been bullied via social media?

Question Title

* 4. Do you allow your child to have their mobile phone in their bedrooms?

Question Title

* 5. Our current policy is that students may use their mobile phones in unstructured times across the day both inside and outside the school building.  We would like to propose one of two ideas to address some of the concerns raised in the introduction.  

Proposal 1:
Total ban of phones on site between arrival at the school gates and exiting at the school gates.

Proposal 2:
Total ban of phones inside the school buildings with the use of phones permitted in outside areas including the covered quad. 

Please tick only one box indicating your preferred proposal.

Question Title

* 6. Do you have any other comments that would support our proposals?
