Personal Mobile Device Policy

St Catherine's takes the safe and responsible use of digital technologies, student safety and wellbeing, along with the development of social skills and positive behaviour very seriously. Whilst we acknowledge that we live in a technology-rich world where mobile devices are an important communication tool, research has found that mobile devices can be disruptive in classrooms and are open to misuse at school. The unregulated presence of personal mobile devices in classrooms can undermine students' capacity to think, learn, remember, pay attention, regulate emotion and build resilience.

This policy aims to remove an unnecessary distraction from our classrooms and playgrounds, so that teachers can teach, and students can learn in a more focused, positive and supportive environment.   

Parents are encouraged to read through the policy and familiarise themselves with the procedures, practices and processes.
