From June 6th pupils will no longer be allowed to have their phones out on school site at any time, including at break and lunchtimes. A large proportion of schools have now banned phones and research shows that this has a positive impact on student examination outcomes, literacy levels and improves attendance and punctuality. The research also shows that pupils who have an opportunity to ”switch off” are more likely to avoid mental health issues such as depression and related health problems. Pupils will be allowed to bring their phone to school but must keep them on silent or switched off and keep them in their bags. This includes during lessons and at break and lunchtimes and applies to the whole school site. If you need to contact your child please contact reception or email the relevant year office and the message will be taken to them as quickly as possible. In an emergency your child will be able to contact you via student reception or the year office. If pupils are seen to have their phones out they will be confiscated for the day and kept at student reception. They will be able to collect them at the end of the school day. Any defiance or refusal to hand in the phone, if requested, will result in a further sanction of isolation. Pupils who have had their phones confiscated three times will have them confiscated for two days and parents will be asked to attend a meeting.We would like to thank you for your support in this matter.

MESSAGE FROM THE HEAD
Happy Pentecost. The values we use for all of our work at Cardinal Wiseman are based on the “gifts of the Sprit”. Fundamental is the belief that all of us are made in God’s image and therefore are entitled to respect and recognition as a unique human being. We believe that using wisdom and courage all young people can achieve and that they can develop their gifts and talents.As exams start in earnest from 16th May we pray for all of our students that they may have the courage and perseverance to give of their best during the exam season, confident in the knowledge that whatever the outcomes they are valued.Hard work, prayers and a little bit of luck is what is needed. Please join us in praying for all of them.
