Complaints Procedure (hyperlink)
Governing Bodies of Academies, Free Schools and Independent schools are required, under the Education (Independent Schools Standards) Regulations 2014 to have in place a procedure to deal with complaints relating to the institution and to any community facilities or services that the institution provides. The law also requires the procedure to be publicised.
Confidential Report (Whistleblowing) Policy (hyperlink)
There are certain complaints which fall outside the remit of the Complaints Procedure, for example, staff grievances or disciplinary procedures. It is recommended that the Djanogly Learning Trust (the Trust) ensures that any third party providers offering community facilities or services through the use of its premises or facilities [even if, for example, it is hiring them out for a wedding reception], have their own complaints procedure in place.
The term “complainant” has been used for all those bringing a complaint against the Trust/Academy and includes all complainants, not specifically parents or carers.
