During school hours, mobile phones must be switched off and kept in a safe place such as a school bag. They must be kept out of sight and are the responsibility of the pupil and not the school.
To support with removing barriers and distractions in the classroom, Rudheath Senior Academy acts as a ‘mobile detox’ school. In striving to promote our ethos of excellence and kindness, the use of mobile phones during social time (lunch/break) can cause unnecessary strain and pressure, poor relationships and a negative affect on pupil mental health.
It is expected that mobile phones will not be on or out of bags during the hours of 8.45am – 3.00pm, unless permission has been sought from a teacher – for example, to use them for research or positive teaching strategies.
If you need to urgently contact your child, please contact the school reception and a message will be communicated via their class teacher and/or Head of Year.
