The Governing Body ensures anyone wishing to make a complaint in relation to SEND, whether they have an EHC plan or not, is treated fairly, given the chance to state their case, provided with a written response (including the rationale for any decisions) and informed of their appeal rights in line with the school complaints procedure. In the first instance, any parent or carer with a concern about the implementation of the SEND policy should speak to their child’s class teacher or the SENDCo. If they wish to pursue a complaint they should contact the Headteacher and follow the school’s complaints procedure. If the complainant remains concerned after following the complaints procedure, he/she could ask the Department for Education’s School Complaints Unit to take up the matter.
