Mobile Phones, Valuables, Lost Property & Jewellery

Mobile Phones

We recognise that some of our pupils have a long way to travel and parents like to be able to contact them on the home/school transport. We ask pupils to hand their phones into the School Office at the start of the day as we do not allow mobile phones in school. They can collect them from the School Office at the end of the day. If pupils refuse to hand in their phones, they may be confiscated and parents asked to collect them.

We ask that pupils do not exchange telephone numbers with each other without written consent from parents/carers.

Valuables

A valuable  can be considered anything that the child or parent would be upset at the loss of or damage to. On past experiences this includes:

  • Jewellery
  • Electrical Equipment
  • Cameras
  • Computer Games
  • MP3 Players
  • Treasured toys
  • Tablets
  • Mobile phone

Where it is agreed a pupil may bring in a specific item for an activity, this should be handed in at the School Office at the beginning of the day for safe keeping.

Money

Pupils are not allowed to lend or borrow money from another child.

Lost Property

The School Office holds the lost property. Where possible they will be returned to the child. Every year we have numerous items that are unnamed. Pupils and their families are given the opportunity to claim any lost items. Any items that are then left are donated to a charity identified by the School Council. 

Jewellery

Those with pierced earrings: 

  • Stud earrings only may be worn during school time. However, they must be removed/covered in times such as; PE, Games, Swimming, Design Technology, Science and Work Related Learning

No other jewellery should be worn to school.

We encourage pupils not to have multiple piercings for reasons of Health and Safety as they will need to be removed or covered for some activities. The school does not accept responsibility for the safe keeping of possessions. Children should never bring personal items to school without the prior knowledge and permission of their parents/carers.
