Complaints about an individual school
Most concerns can be settled quickly by speaking to the relevant person in school, without the need to use a formal procedure. However, if you are not happy with the response you receive then you may make your complaint using the procedures set out in the schools complaints procedure.
Should you wish to make a formal complaint about an individual school, please ask the school concerned for a copy of its complaints' procedure.
The local authority cannot respond to complaints about individual schools as the school governing body is responsible for addressing these complaints.
