Who to contact
It is important you raise your concern with your form or class teacher. It is likely they will be best able to sort things out quickly and efficiently.
If you're unable to speak with your form or class teacher then you should speak with your deputy head or head teacher.
If you still have concerns you can write to your school's governing body. If your concern is about a school that does not have a governing body then contact the Education Department or write to the Group Director for Education.
Concerns about school or nursery admissions
Contact the Education Department for all States' school admission questions.
If your concern is about a fee paying school you must contact the school directly.
