Mobile phones will soon be kept out the hands of public school students in Victoria, with the state government giving schools $12.4 million to help roll out new lockers.

Education Minister James Merlino says the money will be spent on lockers or locked pouches in state primary and secondary schools.

From the start of 2020, all state school students will need to turn off their phones and store them during the school day.
