What do I do if I am concerned about something?
Sometimes you may feel things have gone wrong or perhaps you are unhappy about something that has happened. It may be to do with your child’s progress, actions of a member of staff or another pupil’s conduct. We know it can be difficult to question what a school is doing, but if you do not tell them what is worrying you, they cannot explain their actions or put things right. Their support for you and your child will not lessen in any way.
What to do first
First of all speak to your child’s teacher who will deal with the issue or pass you on to someone more able to help you.
You can contact the school in person, by telephone, letter or email. Most concerns or complaints will be sorted out quickly by putting something right, or by giving an extra explanation of the school's actions.
Making a complaint
If you are not satisfied with the response you receive to your concern you may wish to make a complaint. Please see our Complaint Policy for further advice.
