My son was recently caught using his phone in school.

 

He wasn't in a class full of stdents and im all for disapline in schools and i a gree he should not have been using it in school.they. took the phone from him and confiscated it.

 

the only thing is that when I went uo to the school to ask for the phone at the end of the day they refused to let me have it back. they said they were allowed to confiscate it from us all .

 

now does anyone else know of this its not a band weapon noer a danger to student safety. she said that when we agreed to my son coming to this school we agreed to this law. not that i know of and i agree to the confiscation in scool but not to them confiscating it for 24hours solid

 

is this right anyone are the Gorse acadamy teachers allowed to play this part in our society.

 

Best part of this hypocritical lot the teacher who found him on the phone was actually on the phone at the time.

Article in the Telegraph has a list of what schools can and cant do. Your query is the first in the list - the school can confiscate the phone, but it must be returned at the end of the day.

 

and another.

 

https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/family/education/school-education/problems-at-school/

 

Confiscation of items

 

This information applies only to schools in England and Northern Ireland.

 

Disciplinary penalties may include confiscation and/or disposal of items like MP3 players or mobile phones. The confiscation has to be reasonable in the circumstances. For example, government guidance states that if a pupil is playing loud music on a personal music player, it would be reasonable to take it away and return it at the end of the day. But it would not be reasonable to destroy it.

 

 

Whilst the destruction of the item in your case doesn't apply - it does appear that it should be returned at the end of the day.

Many thanks for this advise citizenb yes thank you I have seen this item but the school say they have the right to keep the phone for 48hrs

 

Even from me.

 

that has to be legally wrong surely

 

she said that we agreed to the rules by letting my son go to the school in the first place WHAT! Im all for the rules of in school discipline but you have now right to keep my goods against my will as an adult or a parent of a child

 

regards

Rose, perhaps you should ask for a copy of the contract/rules that you were supposed to have agreed to - you want a copy of the document from the time that your child actually started at the school and not the latest edition !

I asked for an agreement that I had signed showing just such an agreement and all she said was that i agreed to the terms of all this by the fact that my son had come to this school.

 

What part of it didnt she get .she said i could call the police it wouldn't make any difference as they agree with them.they had it last week with someone else the police came and they said they were right. don't think so do you. There was nothing untoward about the phone nor did they have reason to search it for anything just the point that he was on it.Ironic hypocritical point was that the teacher taking the class that confiscated the phone had been on her phone prior to taking his phone off of him

 

thanks citizenb

In my days we didn't have phones, but we had football stickers and marbles.

If I got them confiscated I wouldn't even tell my dad, otherwise he would throw the marbles in my head one by one (and we used to have lots).

Why don't you side with the school and teach your son a lesson?

    • well you need to get the warrant suspended best idea might be to get an N245 running to the court and also request the warrant be suspended for now a lot quicker than set aside the CCJ, that's poss for later thread moved to the main bailiff forum.   have a read of these threads explains everything https://cse.google.com/cse?cx=partner-pub-8889411648654839:3134625398&q=southern water CCJ warrant Bailiff&oq=southern water CCJ warrant Bailiff&gs_l=partner-generic.12...222377.222377.0.223565.1.1.0.0.0.0.151.151.0j1.1.0.gsnos%2Cn%3D13...0.0...2.34.partner-generic..1.0.0.pceIapA3BaY
    • i wouldn't let them in, as they was waiting on my front door when i got back from the park with my son, i got my phone out to record everything, they were being really nasty, even though they never knew where i lived untill i phone them up and told them i was sorting this out, horrid experience 
    • sounds like the usual SW tactics to me they've sent in the HCEO's as the debt is above £600   becareful they are BAILIFFS NOT A DCA so have legal powers!! but they cannot force entry on a consumer debt.
    • well from what the lady on the phone, customer service,  told me it was because they knew i had my bank statements sent to my exs address, since we broke up i have been staying at friends place untill i found a flat to rent in margate , but the place had a communal post box so for safety i got my letters sent there,   thats  until i met my new partner and we moved in to together, other than that i don't really know, i can't actually pay the bill a single there isnt one anymore, or i would just to get them off my back,   the actual bill is 890 the rest is something else, fees i would guess.   il get a letter in the post asap with regard to the SAR, good idea, this is all since 2014/2015 
  • Our picks

    • This is a bit of a lengthy one but I’ll summerise best as possible.
       
      THIS IS HOW THE PHONECALL WENT 
       
      I was contacted by future comms by phone, they stated that they could beat any phone contract I have , (I am a limited company but just myself that needs a business phone and I am the only worker) 
      I told future comms my deal, £110 per month with a phone and a virtual landline, they confirmed that they could beat that, £90 per month with a phone , virtual landline  they also confirmed they would pay Vodafone (previous provider) the termination fee. As I am in business, naturally I was open to making a deal. So we proceeded. 
      Future comms then revealed that the contract would be with PLAN.COM and the airtime would be provided by 02, I instantly told them that this would break the deal as I have poor 02 signal in the house where I live as my partner is on 02 and constantly complaining about bad signal
      the salesman assured me he would send a signal booster box out with the phone so I would have perfect signal.
      so far so good.....
      i then explained this is the only mobile phone I use for business and pleasure, so therefore I didn’t want any disconnection time in the slightest between the switchover from Vodafone to 02
      the salesman then confirmed that the existing phone would only be disconnected once the new phone was switched on.
      so far so good....

    • The FSA has announced large fines against DB UK Bank Limited (trading as DB Mortgages) - DeutscheBank and also against Redstone for their unfair treatment of their customers.
      Please see the links below for summaries and full details from the FSA website.
      It is now completely clear that any arrears charges which exceed actual administrative costs are unfair and therefore unlawful.
      Furthemore, irresponsible lending practices are also unfair and unlawful.
      Additionally there are other unfair practices including unarranged counsellor visits - even if they have been attempted.
      You are entitled to refuse counsellor visits and not incur any charges.
      Any charges for counsellor visits must not seek to make profits. The cost of the visits must be passed on to you at cost price.
      We are hearing stories of people being charged for counsellor visits for which there is no evidence that they were even attempted.
      It is clear that some mortgage lenders are trying to cheat you out of your money.
      You should ascertain how much has been taken from you and claim it back. The chances of winning are better than 90%. It is highly likely that the lender will attempt to avoid court action and offer you back your money.
      However, you should ensure that you receive a proper rate of interest and this means that you should be seeking at least restitutionary damages - which would be much higher than the statutory 8%.
      Furthermore, you should assess whether the paying of demands for unlawful excessive charges has also out you further into arrears and if this has caused you further penalties in terms of extra interest or any other prejudice. This should be claimed as well.
      If excessive unlawful charges have resulted in your credit file being affected, then you should take this into account also when working out exactly what you want by way of remedy from the lender.
      You should consult others on these forums when considering any offer.
      You must not make any complaint through the Ombudsman. your time will be wasted, you will wait up to 2 yrs and there will be a minimal 8% award of interest and no account will be taken of any other damage you have suffered.
      You must make your complaint through the County Court for a rapid and effective remedy.
