School complaints procedure

Resolving complaints

At each stage in the procedure, the school will want to resolve the complaint. If appropriate, we will acknowledge that the complaint is upheld in whole or in part. In addition, we may offer one or more of the following: 

  • An explanation
  • An admission that the situation could have been handled differently or better 
  • An assurance that we will try to ensure the event complained of will not recur
  • An explanation of the steps that have been or will be taken to help ensure that it will not happen again and an indication of the timescales within which any changes will be made
  • An undertaking to review school policies in light of the complaint
  • An apology.
