What to Do If You Have a Concern

Part of our vision for St Peter's is that "We will always aim to nurture relations that are based on trust and respect and value everyone's contribution.  We actively seek to work in partnership with parents and carers".

Everyone wants to ensure that each child is happy and successful in school and we will want to work with you to ensure this.  We communicate with you, about your child, in many different ways and will always let you know if we have any concerns. However, it is also really important that you let us know if you have any worries about your child's academic or pastoral wellbeing. 

In order to make sure that we can respond to concerns it is important that you talk to the right person and in the first instance it is always best to discuss concerns with your child's class teacher. They will always know your child best, and will usually be able to help to solve most problems or concerns. Please contact the welcome desk to arrange an appointment with your child's class teacher if you wish to discuss something that will require more time than a quick chat at the end of the school day. 

If, once you have spoken with the classteacher, you still have concerns then it is best to talk with the appropriate Phase Leader.  Phase Leaders have overall responsibility for the learning, wellbeing and behaviour for particular year groups within the school.   Our Phase Leaders are:

Mrs Kelly Nash Foundation Stage
Mrs Claire Wilmott KS1 (Years 1 & 2)
Miss Jemima Napier Lower KS2 (Years 3 & 4)
Miss Emma Bond Upper KS2 (Years 5 & 6)

Phase leaders can be contacted via email and will respond to a concern within 5 working days as they have a morning each week to deal with all their phase leader responsibilities. (All safeguarding concerns will of course be dealt with as a matter of immediate priority.)

If you have any concerns, or complaints, around any aspects of SEND, or SEND provision, please contact Mrs Lynne McCullough, our SENCO:

If there are still concerns, or if you have any concerns about our provision, then please make an appointment to talk with Mr Tim Eustace (Deputy Head) or one of our co-headteachers, Mrs Janine Ashman or Mrs Catrin Battista.

We strive to build and maintain excellent relationships with all in our parent community and always seek to address concerns and find solutions. However, should you require further information, please see the LSP Complaints Policy, and the Whistleblowing Policy, by clicking on the link below:
