Special Educational Needs and Disability


Compliments & Complaints

Our school is part of the wider community and the individuals who work in it will and should be open to comments, compliments, criticism and questions.

Compliments are always appreciated and can be made either directly to staff, by contacting our SENCO, formally recorded via our regular questionnaires to parents or in the form of a letter to the Head Teacher. 

Any complaints will be dealt with as quickly and efficiently as possible. These concerns are either sorted out informally, often as a result of discussions, or become formal complaints. The period of consideration will vary with the gravity and complexity of the complaint and the urgency with which it needs to be settled.


An independent source of support and advice is the Special Educational Needs and Disabilities Information Advice and Support Service (SENDIASS):
