Complaints Procedure

A Quick Guide for Parents/Carers

From time to time, it may be necessary for you to complain and we aim for any complaints to be resolved to your satisfaction

Please follow these procedures for making a complaint:

  1. Make an appointment to see your child’s Classteacher via the Academy office
  2. If the complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction make an appointment to see the Phase Leader, via the Academy office
  3. If the complaint is not resolved to your satisfaction make an appointment to see the Assistant Principal or Principal, via the Academy office
  4. If the complaint is still not resolved, then you need to put your complaint in writing to the Chair of the Local Governing Body, via the Academy office. You will be invited to meet with the chair of the Local Governing Body to discuss the complaint
  5. Should the above steps still leave the complaint unresolved, a meeting of the Complaints Committee of the Local Governing Body will be held to hear your complaint
  6. If you are not content that the complaint has been dealt with properly by the Complaints Committee, then you are entitled to appeal to the Secretary of State for Education
