Mobile Phone Policy
SOL Language Clubs offers a ‘culture of safety’ in which the children and staff are protected from abuse, harm, and distress. We therefore have a clear policy on the acceptable use of mobile phones that is understood and adhered to by everyone: staff, children and parents. Abiding by the terms of the club’s mobile phone policy ensures that we all:
Protect children from harm and abuse
Prevent staff from being subject to false allegations
Help staff remain focused on the care of children
Work in an open and transparent environment.
Should this policy be contravened a full report will be required by the Management of SOL Language Clubs and Disciplinary procedures may be taken.
