Complaints Procedure

Complaints Procedure

Complaints Procedure

From time to time, children, parents and others connected with the academy, will become aware of matters which will cause them concern. To ensure that all of these matters are resolved in an effective manner the Trust has adopted a complaints procedure.

The procedure was devised with the intention that it will:

Our complaints procedure consists of the following three stages:

  • Stage 1 – Informal Resolution
  • Stage 2 – Formal
  • Stage 3 – Appeal Formal Outcome – Panel Hearing

All complaints must be explored following these three stages.

How to make raise a concern or make a complaint

In the first instance, we would ask that parents and carers make an appointment with their child’s class teacher to attempt to resolve the problem in an informal discussion. If after meeting with your child’s teacher you feel that the issue remains unresolved, we ask that you make an appointment to meet with one of our Phase Leaders or a member of the Senior Leadership Team. If you feel that the complaint is of a formal nature, we ask that you make an appointment with the Deputy Head Teacher or Headteacher to discuss your concerns. Once a complaint has been received, we aim to resolve the matter promptly and ensure that a suitable outcome is reached.

The Academies Commitment

In line with our commitment to building a caring and supportive environment for staff, pupils, parents and visitors, we ask that all visitors behave in an appropriate manner when interacting with staff.

The academy is committed to listening to our parents, carers and children and their concerns. We will do our upmost to investigate your concerns/complaints and respond in a timely fashion. We may not always get it right every time, but we are always willing to listen and improve experiences for all community members. 

Under no circumstances should staff be shouted at, sworn at, threatened or physically assaulted. Any such behaviour will result in reports being made to Nottingham Police and the Academy will exercise it’s legal right to refuse entry to the grounds and building.

Please use the complaint format below when making a stage 1, 2 or 3 complaint.
