York’s Outcomes Framework
What if you have a concern or complaint?
We hope that we can all work together to see your child make good progress. If however you have a concern or complaint about the way we have supported and helped your child, the following steps should be taken:
- Discuss the matter with the class teacher and/or the SENDCo
- If the problem is not resolved arrange a meeting with the Head Teacher. It may be appropriate for others to be involved in the meeting (e.g. the class teacher, SENDCo or Educational Psychologist) You can also speak with the SEND Governor, Mrs Ros Wilson. We will make every effort to resolve the matter in school
- If the problem still remains unresolved you can meet with a representative of the Local Authority. Contact a member of the SEN department on 01904 554320 or emailing SENdept@york.gov.uk to arrange this
