This policy is intended to set out how The Sholing Technology College will deal with complaints from parents, students and the public, who should feel able to express their views knowing that they will be dealt with fairly. Staff wishing to make a complaint should follow the Staff Conduct, Discipline and Grievance Policy.
The Headteacher and staff deal with specific complaints as part of their day-to-day management of the school in accordance with the school’s Complaints Procedure. The majority of complaints are handled in an informal manner and are resolved quickly, sensitively and to the satisfaction of the complaint. However, there are occasions when complainants behave in an unreasonable manner when raising and/or pursuing concerns. In these circumstances the school may take action in accordance with this policy.
Our curriculum is designed to provide all students with a broad, balanced and enriching experience, which allows each individual to realise their potential regardless of ability.
This Policy applies to all off-site visits and all adventurous activities carried out with young people, with the exception of work experience placements. In addition, it applies to any visit taking place abroad which involves young people.
