PHONES IN SCHOOL
All students are respectfully reminded about the use of phones in school. If phones are used without permission in class then they will be confiscated until the end of your official school day. If you temporarily need your phone it is your responsibility to return it to the office or senior staff member. If you continually abuse the rules we will contact home and request they pick up the phone.
Could I also remind students that it is an offence to film or record people and then share it regardless of the intent. It is our Policy to involve the Police where there is clear misuse of phones or other IT to bully, intimidate or harass any member of or school community. Thanks you for your cooperation in these matters
Would all S6 please note- it was agreed with the senior student leaders last week that Leavers Hoodies will be worn in school toward the end of session, nearer your point of leaving school in April/May. Therefore I would respectfully request they are not worn to school/ in class as uniform as from Monday 2 December 19. Please be advised that if they are worn you will be asked to remove them and continual refusal to cooperate with staff over this matter will be referred to SMT.
