Mobile Phones at Arena Academy

At Arena Academy we recognise that mobile phones, including smart phones, are an important part of everyday life for our students, parents/carers and staff, as well as the wider school community.

  • Promote, and set an example for, safe and responsible mobile phone use
  • Set clear guidelines for the use of mobile phones for students, staff and parents/carers.
  • Support the school’s other policies, especially those related to Safeguarding and child protection, E Safety and behaviour.

This policy also aims to address some of the challenges posed by mobile phones in school, such as:

  • Risks to safeguarding and child protection
  • Data protection issues
  • Potential for lesson disruption
  • Risk of theft, loss, or damage
  • Appropriate use of technology in the classroom
