Raising a concern
Although we work very hard as a school, there may be times when you wish to raise a question or concern. So that we can deal with this in the most effective way, we have a protocol which we would ask that all parents follow.
1. If the question/concern is regarding a Teaching and Learning aspect of your child's provision, please arrange to meet with your child's class teacher by contacting the school office either by telephone or email stating your specific query, giving a reasonable time for the teacher to respond given their teaching commitments. We will commit to responding within 24hours. It is not appropriate to discuss these issues on the playground as the teacher will not have the time to engage in a full conversation as they will be supervising their class. We ask that you respect the professionalism and wellbeing of the staff in this respect. If the question/concern is regarding Safeguarding, then please ask to speak to Mrs King who is the designated personnel for Safeguarding.
2. After meeting with the class teacher, please allow a reasonable time for your question/concern to be resolved. It may be that the teacher wishes to speak to a colleague, your child or other children involved.
3. If, after point 1 and 2, you are still not satisfied with the outcome, please contact the school office and request a meeting with the Assistant Headteacher, Mrs Ferrara.
It may not be possible to see Mrs Ferrara on the same day. An appointment will not be offered unless points 1-2 have been carried out.
5. If, after speaking with the Assistant Headteacher, you remain unsatisfied, then please follow the school's complaints procedure which can be viewed on the policies page of this website (use the internal link below) or a paper copy obtained from the school office.
In accordance with our Holme School Agreement, we would ask that all interactions with the school are positive, respectful and polite, recognising the professionalism and dedication of the staff. We will not tolerate any form of verbal or physical abuse or aggression.
We are a happy school, striving to create a positive climate for children and families.
We also have a committed group of Governors who are happy to discuss anything with you. Please feel free to contact Mr Iain Fairlie.
