Complaints for parents of children with Special Educational Needs:
The complaint procedure for special educational needs mirrors the school’s other complaints procedures. Should a parent or carer have a concern about the special provision made for their child they should in the first instance discuss this with the class teacher.

If the matter is not resolved satisfactorily parents have recourse to the following:

  • discuss the problem with the SENCO
  • discuss the problem with the Headteacher

More serious on-going concerns should be presented in writing to the SEN Governor, who will inform the Chair of the Governors

Should you wish to make an appointment with any of the above, please contact the school office on 01282 426833 or office@st-jameslanehead.lancs.sch.uk

The complaints procedure can be found on the school website.

If the complaint regards a Statutory Assessment of a child’s needs, the complaint should be forwarded to the Local Authority.

Parents/Carers can find more information by clicking here.
