Parental Complaints:

  • In the event of a grievance arising, please follow the agreed Parental Complaints Procedure available to view under the parent section of our website. This is a staged procedure, and steps cannot be skipped. First port of call is always the relevant staff member, then the Principal and if this matter is not resolved to your satisfaction, after that a more formal procedure is instigated. We aim to work together in your child’s best interests and encourage open and respectful communication.
