Mobile phone devices are brought to school at students’ own risk. Highdown School and Sixth Form Centre does not accept any liability for loss or damage whilst at, or on route to/from, the academy.
Responsible and acceptable use
We expect students to use their mobile phones responsibly and appropriately to support learning at Highdown School. Mobile phones will be confiscated for misuse and will be returned to the Headteacher’s PA’s office for collection at the end of the school day. An after school detention will also be issued. Examples of misuse include: using in a lesson/mentor period/assembly without permission, playing music so others can hear it, taking photographs/videos of others without consent, making threatening calls, sending inappropriate messages to others or about others and/or misuse of social media. If students choose to refuse to hand over their mobile phone when challenged they will spend a day in internal exclusion.
