There may be something that concerns you.  If this is so, please do not hesitate to contact us.  Sometimes a phone call or a visit to discuss your concerns will resolve the problem or put right something that has been bothering you.  If you are dissatisfied about the way your child is being treated or any action, or lack of action, by us, please let us know your concerns.

What we will do if you do complain

We will deal with your complaint honestly, politely and in confidence and we will look into your complaint thoroughly and fairly.  We will keep you up to date at all time with the progress of your complaint.  If we have made a mistake we will apologise.  We will always tell you what we are going to do to put things right.  Our aim is to ensure that formal complaints will receive a full clear written reply within 20 working days.

“Your support has been excellent. Knowing that little stresses can have significant impact on a young person’s learning and then their capacity to cope is less; letting the young person know they are valued and treating them as individuals; knowing what impact things that happen through the day can have on home life and keeping us informed to reduce the stresses.”
