 Mobile phones in school Posted: Apr 2018 During recent assemblies we have been reminding pupils of The Gordon Schools’ policy on mobile phones, which is as follows below.

Put your mobile phone out of use in class unless the teacher has stated you may use it

Your phone should remain in the classroom if you need to visit the toilet

Mobile devices should not be in use in the corridors during lesson changeovers

If you do not put your phone away when first asked:

Your name will be passed on to your Year Head.

On the first report to Year Head, the phone will be taken for the rest of the day and stored in the Main School Office for collection by you.

The second report will result as above together with a letter home to Parents/Carers informing them that the next time, they will have to collect the phone.

The third report will result in your phone being taken away and, in line with Aberdeenshire Council policy, your Parent/Carer will be required to come to school to collect the phone.

TGS: Together – this statement on mobile phones refers to our Values of ‘Cooperation’ and ‘Respect’
