Complaints Procedure

Here at The Oval we take your views seriously.  If you have any problems please follow the school contact procedure below:



1.       Raise ALL queries / issues / problems / comments in the first instance with the CLASS TEACHER as follows:


Either at the end of the day or telephone school on 0121 464 3248 for an appointment

Contact Us


2.       If you are not satisfied with how your query has been dealt with then the next step would be for you to see the senior staff member with responsibility for the particular year group your child is in. You can make an appointment at the school office as follow:


 Mrs M Chadda Reception/Year 1 
 Miss D Hollis Year 2
 Mrs J Foulds Year 3 
 Mrs M Priestley / Mrs S Millington Year 4 
 Mrs C Mason Year 5 
 Mrs H Williams Year 6 




Please follow the procedure above to ensure any queries are quickly dealt with.  However, if you have followed steps 1 and 2 as stated above but you still have outstanding queries, you can make an appointment at the school office to meet with one of school’s deputy headteachers or assistant headteachers.


Be assured that staff will always investigate the issue, feed back to parents, take appropriate steps to deal with any issues arising and plan a follow up meeting.


Your support is appreciated by

Mrs R L Chahal and Governing Body of The Oval School
