Mobile devices (Including smart watches & air pods)

High quality teaching and learning is a way of ensuring good behaviour in school and at The Bishop of Winchester Academy we value good behaviour in the classroom and around our school community. To ensure that the classrooms are safe and effective learning environments mobile phones (including smart devices and air pods) and music players/ devices are not allowed in The Bishop of Winchester Academy, at any time (even before and after school). They are a disruptive influence to life in the school and can lead to bullying and other social problems. They are expensive leading to temptation of theft inside and out of school. Ideally they should be left at home. The academy will never take responsibility for the loss of a mobile device on site. Student support services are able to facilitate phone calls between students and parents if the need arises.

If a device is seen or heard while on the academy site (including before and after school hours) or the academy is aware that a student has used their device while on the academy site the device will be confiscated and taken directly to student support services where it will be placed in the school safe. The phone will then be available for collection one week from the date on confiscation (or the final Friday of the half term). A slip will be given to the students stating the date and time for collection. No mobile devices will be returned under any circumstances before the day agreed.
