Mobile Devices Policy

Introduction - The Governing Council and Staff of Craigburn Primary School acknowledge the importance parents place on the safety of their children.  The ability for children to be able to contact parents in cases of emergency or danger is essential.  Access to mobile devices by children has become a useful tool for families to keep in contact with each other in such circumstances.  

 

The Staff and Governing Council also acknowledge, that the use of mobile devices (including phones, iPads and watches) for communication while children are at school during the hours of 8.30am and 3.30pm, and in situations where they are cared for in the OSHC programme, is not necessary.  In these circumstances both parents and students have access to each other through the normal communication channels at school.

 

Parents are able to ring and get messages to children to alter plans or to ensure their safety in cases of family emergency.  Children can be called to the phone if it is essential that the parent speak with the child directly.  Similarly, children are able to use the school phone to contact parents if required and when directed by their teacher.

 

Staff also acknowledgs the use of mobile devices within the classroom context as deemed appropriate by teachers.  As part of our Digital Learning focus at the school we value the use of mobile devices as tools to enhance student learning.  This however does not provide students with added access to the messaging features of these devices.

 

It is up to parents to determine when it is appropriate for the child to bring a mobile device to school. 

 

 

Mobile Phone/Device Procedures

 

The following process will apply for students who bring a mobile device to school:
  • Students who use a mobile device during the day, without teacher supervision will have them confiscated by the principal/deputy, parents notified.
  • The school accepts no responsibility for the theft, breakage or loss of mobile devices.
  • Students who attend school camps or excursions may be able to take a mobile device with them at the teachers’ discretion.  Teachers carry phones, which are used in cases of emergency; in a camp situation, contact details will be made available to parents prior to departure.
