  • Handling complaints during the coronavirus (COVID-19 outbreak)

    DfE does not expect schools to handle new or existing complaints while they are closed. Schools should, however, still engage with parents and pupils where they can. Complaints can be considered once the government confirms schools can safely reopen.

    Contact your local council or call the police on 101 if you’re told a child is at risk.

    Schools and complainants can contact DfE for more information about school complaints.

‘Leaders, including governors, understand the strengths and weaknesses of the school’s work.
They take decisive action to secure improvement. Consequently, the gaps in the progress made by different groups of pupils are diminishing.’
