Positive Behaviour Guide & Mobile Technology use
Mobile technology use at WKS (Smart-phones and tablets)
Technology can be a valuable source of information, when used appropriately. However, in the media and from recent reports by the government we have seen evidence of the negative effects associated with modern technologies. These have included; distraction or ‘Safeguarding’ issues such as Cyber-bullying and grooming, with the particular problem occurring via the use of mobile phones and tablets.
At West Kirby School we have the following rules:
- All phones handed in at registration in the morning to form tutor or teaching assistant
- All phones handed back to pupils at the end of the day at registration
- Pupils in KS4 can work towards having the phone for use in the activity part of lunchtimes. The aim of this is also to help the transition to post 16/college
