Governors’ Report to Parents


It is clearly of paramount importance that the school should run smoothly and that parents/guardians and staff work together in a spirit of co-operation in the children’s best interests.  In the event of complaints from either staff or parents every effort will be made to respond quickly and appropriately and the following procedure will be followed:

–          If a parent/guardian feels that he/she has cause for complaint then he/she should speak to the class teacher in the first instance, then the deputy headteacher or headteacher if a satisfactory solution is not agreed.

–          The complaint will be responded to as quickly as possible and discussions will be held to overcome the problem.

–          It is clearly understood that parents have the right to contact the Governors or LEA after talking to the staff if they feel that they have not received a satisfactory response to their complaint.
