At Lightwoods School, we welcome the views of our parents and local community. This feedback is important to us. We would like you to tell us when you are pleased with the way things are progressing for your children. We also need to know when you have any concerns so that we can act on them in line with our policies and procedures, and make any changes or improvements which may be necessary.
You may wish to compliment or praise the work of a teacher or another staff member working with your children. This can be done informally within any discussion you may be having directly with the person or a senior member of staff, or more formally in a letter or email. Any verbal or written compliments will be recorded by the member of staff receiving the compliment and be passed to the appropriate person. Feedback on compliments which are not given directly to the person concerned will be shared with them at the soonest and most appropriate time after receiving it.
The school has a compliment & comment sheet that is available to all parents. These can be completed and posted confidentially in the school main entrance. For more information see the Sandwell website.
Your child’s class teacher is responsible for your child’s education and general welfare. Should you have any concerns in this respect, they should be your first point of reference. If this does not resolve your concern, or if your concern is of a more serious or on-going nature, please do not hesitate to come into school to discuss it with the phase leader or the Headteacher or Deputy Headteacher. An appointment is not usually necessary, although a phone call would ensure their availability.
If you are not satisfied that your concern has been resolved, you should put your concern in writing to the Chair of Lightwoods Primary School Governors and send this to the Clerk to Governing Body (Donna Howard. Governor Services. SIPS Education Ltd. 2nd Floor, Guardian House, Cronehills Linkway, West Bromwich. B70 8GS). All formal complaints will be investigated by governors.
