Eastborough J I & N School is committed to Safeguarding and promoting the welfare of all of its pupils. Each pupil’s welfare is of paramount importance. We recognise that some children may be especially vulnerable to abuse. We recognise that children who are abused or neglected may find it difficult to develop a sense of self worth and to view the world in a positive way. Whilst at school, their behaviour may be challenging. We recognise that some children who have experienced abuse may harm others. We will always take a considered and sensitive approach in order that we can support all of our pupils.
The school takes all complaints seriously. We will always do our best to investigate complaints quickly and fairly. If you are unhappy about any aspect of your child's education, then you should speak to your child's teacher in the first instance. If you are still unhappy, then you should make an appointment to see the Acting Head Teacher, Mrs A Garfitt. If you feel that the matter has still not been resolved to your satisfaction, then you should put your complaint in writing to the Chair of Governors, Mr Stuart Robertshaw.
