Mobile Phone-Free Zone

We are thinking of making Kings a mobile phone-free school.

Why would we want to do this ?

We are finding that young people are permanently glued to their phone, including during school hours. This presents several concerns:

We are therefore considering Kings to be a mobile phone free zone. Students would be able to keep them in their bags as long as they are switched off. We want students to be happy, to believe in themselves, to be able to learn without disruption from others. We want young people to talk with each other in person and develop the art of conversation. We hope that you will support our proposal.
