Compliments and Complaints
We welcome suggestions for improving our work in school. Be assured that, no matter what you want to tell us, our support and respect for your child will not be affected in any way.
Please tell us of your concern as soon as possible as it is difficult for us to investigate an incident or problem properly if it took place some time ago. We do appreciate the assistance we receive from parents, carers or visitors in addressing any problems that arise.
You are able to download a copy of the compliments or suggestions form here. Please forward this via email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or you may hand it in person. We also have a folder in the office which contains letters, cards and emails from visitors to our school with compliments.
We receive very few complaints. Problems sometimes arise from misunderstandings which are easily addressed. Most concerns and complaints can be sorted out quickly by speaking with your child’s class teacher. When parents/ carers and teaching staff treat each other with mutual respect and support, this provides a very good role model for all our children.
Speak to the class teacher about your concern and try and resolve at this first level. If you still have concerns, then you should arrange to see the Leader of Learning for that phase. If there is still a concern, you can arrange a meeting with either Mrs Ellis HT, Mrs Maude DHT, Mr Scot KS2 AHT or Mrs Sweet EYFS/KS1 AHT.
There may be a time that an appointment will be made with Leadership Team and this is used discretionary depending on the concern. Our first port of call is to resolve any issue informally first.

Our aim is to find a way forward together which serves the best interest of both the school and your child.
In the unlikely event of the problem remaining unresolved you can put your complaint in writing and, if necessary, could subsequently refer it to Mrs Ellis Headteacher or to the School’s Chair or Governors – chairofgovernors@coundon.
