SKPS School Council has been consulted regarding this policy and have agreed that it may be shared with our community now in readiness for Term 1, 2020.
St Kilda Primary School endorses the use of technology for educational purposes and delivers digital literacy as an important aspect of the school program. Selective, quality and empowering uses of technology provide learning opportunities and the ability for students to develop skills they will need in the future. Technology has an important role to play when students use it as instructed by their teacher and as part of the requirements of the curriculum.
The Victorian Government has adopted a strict policy to ban mobile phones in Victorian Government Schools from Term 1, 2020 due to concerns about cyberbullying, distraction and discipline. This policy explains to the school community the approach St Kilda Primary School takes to implementing a ban of mobile phones and wearable devices in the classroom.
