  • Mobile phones are permitted at Warwick School Holiday Action for children in School Years 6 and 7 only.
  • Phones are bought onto site at the owner’s own risk and Warwick School Holiday Action does not take any responsibility for any loss or damage incurred.
  • Use of phones is restricted to breaktimes and lunchtimes and only within the designated ‘Phone Zone’ which is monitored by staff. Phones should be kept safely in their bags during activity sessions and at all other times, including drop-off, registration and pick-up.
  • Staff on duty in the ‘Phone Zone’ will actively and closely supervise the use of mobile phones.
  • The ‘Phone Zone’ is for playing age appropriate games only, i.e. downloadable games that have an age certificate (PEGI rating) appropriate for the age of the children playing them
  • Pupils are not allowed to use their phones to:
    • Access or post on any social media websites (Facebook, YouTube, WhatsApp, Twitter, Instagram, Tik Tok, Snapchat, Reddit, Pinterest, etc)
    • View, take or share photos/videos - including content downloaded from 3rd party websites and social media
    • Make calls or send texts/messages. Any calls to parents must be made by Holiday Action management.
