At Sawyers Valley PS, we recognize that Mobile Phones are a valuable tool for communication between students and parents. However there are some issues that have arisen due to the use of mobile phones in schools. These things include – declining academic achievement, increased risk taking behaviours, health issues such as memory loss & sleeping disorders as well as cyber bullying and more. SVPS has a Mobile Phone Policy which clearly outlines the rights and responsibilities of the student and the school. This policy can be viewed here.
If you require your child to bring their phone to school, please complete the form attached to the policy and return it to the front office.
