State Government Student Mobile Phones Policy

Dear Beaconsfield Primary School community

This week, the State Government announced a new Student Mobile Phones in Public Schools policy to take effect from the start of Term 1, 2020.

The policy requires all public schools to implement a ban on the use of mobile phones for all students from the time they arrive at school to the end of the school day.  This extends to the use of smart watches which need to be on aeroplane mode during this period.

As we already have a phone use policy that meets these minimum requirements, there will be no changes for our school.  Our existing policy will remain in effect. You can view this policy here.

Kind regards
