Complaints Procedure


If parents have a concern about their child, they should make an appointment via the School Office to discuss it with the Headteacher. If the concern is unresolved and they wish to pursue it further, the Education Authority has drawn up a complaints procedure (required under Section 23 of the Education Reform Act) which parents may wish to consult. Copies of the procedure are available for inspection at all schools maintained by the Local Authority, public libraries and the Complaints Officer at the Education Authority Department (address below).
