At Elmore Green Primary School, we always to listen to parents and carers who have a concern about our school. As a parent or carer, your views are very important to us. If you wish to speak to someone in school, please contact the office who will be happy to direct your request.
If your child has special educational needs and you have a concern regarding the support your child receives please refer to the school’s special educational needs policy for the complaints procedure.

We ask that you do not raise complaints using Class Dojo. Class Dojo is a communication tool that is intended to be used for short message exchanges related to events or reminders in school. Our policy outlines the ways in which complaints should be registered within school.
We would hope that in the unlikely event of any such problems occurring, you would feel able to discuss your concerns with the most appropriate member of staff in the first instance or the Headteacher.
