Reducing screen time for Year 7

Reducing screen time for Year 7

For the attention of Year 7 Parents & Carers

Following on from the success of our ‘Hello Yellow’ fundraising mufti-day, Torpoint Community College would like to embed further practices to help support the Mental Health and Wellbeing of our students. Starting on Tuesday 13th October 2020, we would like to trial a ‘phone free’ period at breaktime for all Year 7 students. We want to improve and strengthen friendships and communication between all our students and reduce screen time by putting this in place between the times of 10.15-10.30am. At 10.30am (just before the end of break), students will be able to check their phones for their College timetable to ensure they know what lesson they have next. 

We thank you in advance for your support.
