Addington Valley Academy wishes to communicate effectively with our parents, students and wider community. However, we accept that we can on occasion make mistakes or fail to communicate as well as we would wish.
We are committed to dealing with complaints promptly, fairly and carefully. We encourage parents, carers and other members of the school community to raise (on an informal basis) any concerns they have at the earliest opportunity. In most instances, this will involve speaking directly with the member of staff concerned, who will try to resolve the issue as quickly as possible.
You can get in touch with us in the following ways:
- By letter – Addington Valley Academy, Field Way, New Addington, Croydon CR0 9AZ
- By email – email@example.com
- By telephone – 020 4511 2949
- Or in person, after making an appointment
When you get in touch, please remember that we need to know what has happened, when it took place, who was involved and what you would like us to do to resolve the issue.
If you remain dissatisfied, the school has a formal Complaints Policy which sets out a structure under which your complaint can be heard. You can access the policy by clicking the link below; alternatively a hard copy can be obtained from the school office.
In the first instance all complaints should be brought to the attention of the Principal, John Reilly Tel: 020 4511 2949 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
