St Patrick's Catholic Primary School

With Christ as our guide and example we celebrate the uniqueness of the individual.

Together we will try to:

Learn from Jesus,

Love like Jesus,

Live like Jesus

Responding to Concerns

Catholic schools aim to be places where love of one's neighbour is evident at all times. Staff are committed to caring for and helping children in every way possible. Nevertheless, as in any organisation, misunderstandings can occur and mistakes can be made which might lead to a concern on behalf of a parent. Should you have such a concern you are invited to approach the class teacher to discuss the matter informally. We are committed to responding to a concern as quickly and sensitively as possible in order to resolve the concern promptly. If parents feel this is not achieving a resolution they are invited to make an appointment with the headteacher. Parents are asked to follow our Complaints Procedure (please see below).


Should a parent remain dissatisfied they may contact the Diocese and Hampshire Local Authority as follows:

Diocesan Director of Schools
Park Place Pastoral Centre
Winchester Road
PO17 5HA


The Chief Education Officer
Hampshire Local Authority
The Castle
SO23 8UG


Concerns should be put in writing with copies of all relevant documentation enclosed.
