It's good to hear that there has been a positive response to this initiative:
Assistant head Matthew Chataway said: “It’s not a question of taking a device away from students, but rather giving them back time, the opportunity to try new activities and the chance to take a break from social media.”
I remember that we used to refer to young people as being the "PlayStation Generation", mainly because they weren't getting enough exercise, but nowadays that's probably the least of any parent's worries, as dependency on social media can potentially have an impact on mental health as well. Anything that might help to wean children off their addiction to smartphones can only be a positive step.
