At Pencalenick, we aim to provide you with the highest quality educational service for all of our school community.  Unfortunately, sometimes you may feel there is something not quite right.  If you feel our services have fallen below the standards you expect we would like to hear from you so we can put things right as quickly as possible.

What to do if you have a comment or complaint;

Please contact us to try and resolve things informally.  All staff can deal with concerns or complaints without the need to resort to a formal procedure. Most concerns and complaints can be satisfactorily resolved at this stage, and the school values informal meetings and discussions to facilitate an early resolution.  There is no suggested time-scale for resolution at this stage given the importance of dialogue though informal discussion, although it would be expected that most issues would be resolved within 10 school days.  Please do contact your child's tutor, without delay, if you are at all concerned or worried.

Who do I contact?

Your first step is to contact your child’s tutor.

If you want to escalate your concern, please contact our Senior Leadership Team.
