Complaints will be dealt with in three stages, as described below.

Unless the school considers there are exceptional circumstances, these stages must all be completed sequentially until a resolution is reached.

a) Stage 1 discussion. This stage starts when a concern has been raised, and a stakeholder is not satisfied with the response provided. Such issues should be raised, in the first instance, with those most closely involved and their immediate managers; this gives the best chance for a quick resolution.

b) Stage 2 written complaint. Where a complaint cannot be resolved through Stage 1 discussions, the details should be put in writing by the complainant to the Principal/Headteacher, and an investigation carried out by the school. 

c) Stage 3 panel hearing. Where a complainant has a substantial disagreement with the outcome of the Stage 2 complaint, they may appeal to a panel hearing that will include an independent person. The panel’s decision is final.
