Grievance Policy


Grievance Policy - Parents

 

Rationale

 

St Robert’s School accepts that, from time to time, parents may have a concern or issue about school life and that those concerns or issues need to be communicated to the school. The school has difficulty taking action if not informed of grievances within an appropriate time.

 

All members of the School Community are committed to ensuring a safe and caring environment, which promotes personal growth and positive self-esteem for all.

 

Implementaion Guidelines

 

In order to ensure that grievances are addressed, all members of the school community must speak up and report issues and concerns. The following steps may be of assistance:

 

  • Speak to the classroom teacher or specialist teacher about the issue or problem. It may be a good idea to make an appointment so that teachers can make an appropriate time and allow for uninterrupted discussion. (Discussion during class time should be avoided). Simple misunderstandings and confusions can usually be sorted out at this level.
  •  If you are unable to find a satisfactory solution to the problem make an appointment to see the Principal or Deputy Principal to discuss the matter further.
  •  If the issue or concern needs further attention you can make an appointment with the Parish Priest to discuss the matter.
  •  In the event that a satisfactory solution to the grievance is unlikely after all the above measures advice and assistance from CEO staff shall be sought.
