At Fairlight Primary & Nursery School, we work very hard to maintain positive relationships and communications with all members of the community.
From time to time, however, we recognise that parents may be unhappy.
Therefore, we would advise that they follow the correct procedures of contacting the class teacher, then a senior member of staff and then the Headteacher to outline their concerns.
If after this, parents still feel unhappy they should then follow the schools complaints procedures.
While parents may feel they want to complain to OFSTED or to the local paper, this will not resolve their concerns any quicker and easier, and their communication will be redirected to the schools complaints procedures - a copy of which can be obtained on request from the school office either by email or a paper copy can be provided.
We reserve the right to ask anyone who abuses us, verbally or physically to leave the building. We may also terminate abusive telephone calls.
We will not tolerate violent, aggressive, abusive or threatening behaviour and, in order to protect our employees, such behaviour may be recorded and shared within the Council. We may also impose sanctions that will stop you from being able to visit council premises.
We will not hesitate to report incidents to the police where we believe this is necessary to safeguard our employees. If we take action you may be prosecuted or fined.
