Strict ‘no mobiles in school’ policy
Hamstead Hall Academy, Birmingham
Hamstead Hall Academy in operates a strict no mobile policy yet firmly believes that the controlled use of mobile technology has a significant role to play in education today and credits it a major contributor to its pupils’ recent exam success.
“Mobile phones can be a distraction for everyone but we need to recognise that our students are digital natives, teach them how to use the devices responsibly and make the most of the technology available to support their learning. We saw a direct correlation between GCSEPod usage and exam success."
