  • What is the phone ban in QLD and NSW schools?
    The phone ban refers to the policy implemented by the Queensland (QLD) and New South Wales (NSW) Departments of Education to restrict or regulate the use of mobile phones by students during school hours. These policies aim to create a focused and productive learning environment, minimising distractions and promoting student engagement. The NSW Government School phone ban will commence on Term 4 2023, and the QLD Government School phone ban will be in place by Term 1 2024.
  • What are the guidelines regarding phone usage under the ban?
    During school hours, students are required to keep their mobile phones switched off and stored out of sight, such as in their lockers or bags. Students are not permitted to use their phones for any reason, including phone calls, texting, social media, gaming, taking photos or videos, or playing music. Some schools may provide students with designated designated phone zones or phone boxes where phones can be used during breaks and lunch, while others may offer more leniency in their phone policies. It is important that students follow their school's policy on phone usage to ensure their safety and that of their peers, as well as to promote a positive learning environment.
  • How is the phone ban enforced?
    Enforcement of the phone ban typically involves students storing their mobile phones in secure lockers or designated storage areas provided by the school. Students are expected to comply with the guidelines and hand in their phones upon arrival at school, ensuring they are not accessible during the designated ban period.
  • What are the benefits of the phone ban in QLD and NSW Schools?
    1. Improved Student Concentration: Many students and teachers have reported that banning phones from classrooms has resulted in improving student concentration, as well as fostering a greater sense of engagement with classroom instruction. 2. Reduced Social Mixing: Removing phones from the classroom has been found to limit the ways in which students can mix socially during class time, such as sharing gossip and photos, which can be disruptive to learning. 3. Improved Student Safety: By enforcing a ban on phones in schools, students are less likely to be exposed to online bullying, sexting, and other cyber-related dangers that can occur when devices are used inappropriately. 4. Improved Attitudes Towards Learning: By removing phones from the classroom, students are more likely to focus on their coursework and less likely to be distracted by their devices. Additionally, it has been suggested that having electronic devices constantly present could affect attitudes towards learning and suggest to students that learning isn’t a priority.
