It has been brought to my attention that an increasing number of pupils have been bringing walkie-talkies into school from home which are causing a few problems around the school grounds.
For some reason, it appears that on a few occasions, a child’s walkie-talkie has managed to pick up the radio frequency of walkie-talkies within the local area! This has included picking up conversations being held on the nearby building sites with adults, as well as picking up live broadcasting of MFR!
Obviously, this could lead to pupils over-hearing adult conversations that they shouldn’t do, as well as creating the potential for unknown adults to communicate directly with pupils without anyone being aware.
With this in mind, I would be grateful if you could keep all such devices at home (but also, keep an eye on any unwanted frequencies that they might be able to access even here).
