  • 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)
