Gordano's Mobile Phone Policy was introduced in 2010 and the nature and number of mobile devices in school has changed significantly over that period. So too has the whole context of internet and social media use. We now have a range of concerns about the distractions caused by mobiles phones in lesson time, inappropriate use of social media sites including cyber-bullying, and the filming and photographing of other people without their permission.
A total of 183 parents participated in the online survey on our Mobile Phone Policy just prior to the Christmas break. You can read a summary of the key points here.
The school will be in touch with the whole school community once our governors have given their views and permission to make changes to the policy.
