Classroom Phone Ban FAQ

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. 

Under the phone ban, students are generally not allowed to use their mobile phones during school hours, including breaks and lunchtimes. Specific guidelines may vary between schools, but the overall objective is to keep phones stored away securely to minimise disruptions and ensure maximum concentration on learning activities.

Exceptions to the phone ban may be made in certain circumstances, such as emergencies or for educational purposes with the permission of teachers or school staff. Schools may have specific guidelines on when and how phones can be used for educational purposes, such as accessing learning resources or utilising educational apps.

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.

The phone ban does not compromise student safety. Schools have procedures in place to handle emergencies and ensure effective communication between students, parents, and staff. In emergency situations, schools provide alternative means of communication, such as landline phones or school administration channels.

For specific details regarding the phone ban in QLD and NSW schools, it is recommended to refer to the official websites of the Queensland Department of Education and Training (DET) and the New South Wales Department of Education. These websites provide comprehensive information about the policies, guidelines, and exceptions related to phone usage in schools.

Please note that guidelines and policies may vary between different schools within QLD and NSW, so it is always advisable to check with your school administration for any school-specific requirements or modifications to the phone ban policy.

Does banning phones in schools work?

Yes, banning phones in schools has been shown to produce several positive outcomes that enhance the educational experience:

Improved Academic Performance: Research from the London School of Economics found that schools which implemented mobile phone bans saw a rise in test scores. Lower-achieving students seemed to benefit the most from such policies.

Reduced Classroom Distractions: By removing mobile phones from the learning environment, students are more likely to focus on lectures, discussions, and classroom activities, thereby creating a more effective learning environment.

Better Social Interactions: Phone bans encourage face-to-face interaction among students, promoting better social skills and a more collaborative community within the school.

Enhanced Teacher-Student Interaction: With fewer distractions, students are more likely to participate in classroom discussions and engage with the course material, leading to a richer educational experience.

Decreased Incidents of Cyberbullying: Limiting the use of mobile phones during school hours has been shown to reduce the instances of cyberbullying, thereby making schools safer places for students.

Encourages Personal Responsibility: By adhering to a phone ban, students learn valuable lessons about following rules and the importance of focusing on their education.
