Industry Hotspot 3: Mobile Phones Banned in UK Primary and Secondary Schools


According to The Guardian, the UK government has confirmed plans to ban the use of mobile phones in primary and secondary schools in the UK, and on 18 February released a "Headteacher's Guide" to guide primary and secondary schools across the country on how to implement the ban. According to the guide, UK primary and secondary schools can ban the use of mobile phones by pupils at any time and in any place in the school. However, the guidance is not a mandatory ban, but an authorisation for primary and secondary schools. Primary and secondary schools can choose to ban mobile phones in one of four ways: banning the bringing of mobile phones to school; handing mobile phones to teachers on arrival; locking mobile phones in a designated place on arrival; and pupils being allowed to keep their own mobile phones provided they are not in use or have them silenced. According to some UK unions, the methods in the guide have previously been used in primary and secondary schools in the UK.

In addition, the guidelines give some advice for teachers and parents of students. Primary and secondary schools should clearly inform students of their mobile phone policy and explain the reasons for it. Teachers should also not use mobile phones in front of students unless it is necessary for their work. Parents should also be actively involved by going through the school office when they want to contact their students, rather than calling them directly. (From @iWeekly Weekend Illustrated)
