The UK government supports headteachers banning the use of mobile phones in schools in some capacity, the Department for Education says In his recommendation on Monday. This step is expected to reduce children's distraction while studying and improve their behavior.

“In schools, children have to learn, and phones are at least an unwanted distraction in the classroom.”

Education Minister Gillian Keegan said.

According to surveys, 44% of parents say that their children spend too much time in front of screens, and 29% of students admitted that they use cell phones at school when they should not. By the age of 12, 97 percent of children already have their own phones, and according to the ministry, using them at school leads to cyberbullying.

It is reported that many schools have already banned the use of mobile phones, and many school principals reported that almost on the first day everything became better, and the atmosphere at school completely changed. Not only can students focus on learning in a quieter environment, teachers also have an easier job.

Schools enforce the ban in different ways: in some places it is simply forbidden to bring a phone onto the school campus, in others they collect it at the entrance and return it at the end of the day, but there are also cases where the school has purchased new lockers that students can not only store securely during the day, but Also charge their phones.
