We would like to thank those of you who took the time to respond to the proposal to close the residential provision at St Dominic’s and provide feedback.  Please see the News page for the final Consultation Report.

Worries and Concerns

We hope that you will be very happy with your child’s placement at St Dominic’s but in the event that you have any worries or concerns please contact any member of staff with whom you feel comfortable talking. We will all try to resolve any issues that may arise as quickly as possible. If the member of staff feels they need further support they will pass it on to a senior colleague. If you are dissatisfied with the way your concern has been managed, please contact Angela Drayton, Principal.

If you have a concern that you would prefer to have dealt with externally, you can correspond directly with the Chair of the Governing Body, Mr Ken Cowdery, who can be contacted through the school.

If you wish to make a complaint please follow the schools complaint policy which can be found on the policies page.
