High school pupils are no longer allowed to use their mobile phones during school hours. “We want pupils to concentrate on their studies. In addition, there are violations", says the school principal.

The mobile phone ban applies from this term.

– We started last year in primary education. Now it also applies to upper secondary schools, says Sven Håkansson, Head of Schools in Bromölla municipality.

Martin Grengby, who is the Principal at Humleskolan, explains why:

– We want the pupils to concentrate on their studies. In addition, there are violations where pupils photograph each other and post them on social media in bad contexts.

Pupils have to hand in their mobile phones in the morning. When they go home, they get them back. Most parents think it’s good.

The staff also have to put their mobile phones away.

Dalaskolan södra introduced mobile-free school hours last school year for pupils in year seven.

How did it work the previous academic year?

– We thought it worked well. And the pupils respected it. It was a calmer atmosphere, in fact, a nicer atmosphere.

The pupils talk to each other more and focus on other things, play games and enjoy being outside, says Elisabeth Berglund.
