We believe that the Foundation Bridge Academy provides an excellent education and that the personnel work very hard to build positive relationships with all parents and others. However, we are obliged under Section 39 of the Academy Standards and Framework Act to have in place a clear formal procedure to deal with complaints made against the Academy or individuals connected with it in circumstances when the person raising the concern remains dissatisfied and wishes to take the matter further.

The policy and procedure for making a complaint and how it will be dealt with are detailed in the policy document below.

Where panel hearings occur, a parent/guardian can attend and be accompanied at a panel hearing if they wish.
