School Policies 2020: Under Spring 2020 review
In the absence of our own published documents, you can find our Trust policies here
Pupils are not permitted to wear Smart Watches or other similar style watches with internet connectivity for safeguarding reasons. These are not suitable for wearing in school for a number of reasons. Many of these watches have internet connectivity and cameras, which if used within school could pose a safeguarding risk. Whilst we appreciate that smartwatches can be disabled allowing only the time element to be operational, staff cannot keep a check on connectivity. They are also costly items, which could easily be damaged or go missing.
