Fidget Spinners

There has been an explosion of the use of these stress busting tools of late and, while they can be useful and effective for some students, they can cause issues in some lessons with distraction if not used properly; something that they are, after all, intended to alleviate.

As a school, we are always looking at ways to motivate students and maintain concentration so we are aware of how such ‘toys’ can impact positively. However, we are keen to have such devices used specifically and correctly by students whose needs are already identified by our systems and staff.

Parents of students who are recommended to use the concentration toys will be contacted individually and their effective use discussed in context.

All other students who might choose to bring them to school will be asked to keep them out of sight in bags during lessons.
