Whilst the College accepts that some parents, guardians and carers wish their child to carry a mobile telephone for reasons of personal safety as they travel to and from college, they must remain switched off and kept out of sight during the College day. It is the policy of the College for all Key Stage 3 students to hand their mobile telephones to their form tutors at the beginning of each day. The telephones are then securely stored until the end of the day when they are returned to the students. Please note that the College will not accept liability for the safe keeping of a mobile phone, it will remain the responsibility of the student at all times. Use of a mobile phone during college hours will lead to sanctions being imposed, up to and including confiscation.
