Feedback & Concerns

All feedback and concerns will be taken very seriously. We also like to hear when you are pleased and you may wish to use the Parent View facility on the front page of the website. The Governors will hear complaints about the School, but only after all efforts to resolve the problem have been exhausted.

Step 1: Contact your child’s tutor or subject teacher or the member of staff responsible for that area of the school to discuss the problem. If you are unsure who that is, the office staff will be pleased to point you in the right direction. If you remain unhappy, the Curriculum Team Leader or Year Team Leader can be contacted to look into the matter.

Step 2: If efforts to help resolve the position are not to your satisfaction and you wish to take the matter further, then please complete the form below and email to [email protected]

Policy Review

Dear Parents and Carers


As you may be aware, the statutory guidance from the Department for Education around Relationships and Sex Education has changed. Here at Poltair School, we have worked hard to think about how to teach this to our students, making sure that our lessons are engaging and designed to suit the needs of all of our students in an age appropriate manner. Students will have a lesson called Personal Development once a fortnight, in which this and other topics will be covered. This was formerly known as Morals and Ethics.


We would like to get feedback from our community in order to finalise our policy on the delivery of this important curriculum area. Our draft policy is available on our website for your consideration, and we welcome any questions, comments or feedback via email to Clare Price ([email protected]). When we are able to open up the site to parents and carers, we will hold a review and consultation meeting at school to consider our policy and delivery further. Please send any communications by 10th July 2020 at the latest.

Contact during exceptional circumstances

It is important that all children, families and professionals are able to contact key staff to share information in respect of safeguarding and concerns.

Following the wider opening of all CELT schools, there is now a member of the safeguarding team on duty in school every day. Please contact the school directly and ask for the DSL if you have any concerns you wish to discuss.

The dedicated CELT e mail address is still in operation and can be used if, for any reason, you are unable to contact the school;

secondarysafeguard[email protected]

This will be monitored during office hours only, Monday to Friday.

However, you should contact the Police or Social Care if you feel that a child is at risk of immediate serious harm.
