If you wish to make a complaint, you should do so in accordance with our Trust Complaints Policy

The procedure allows parents, carers or anyone else to raise a concern or complaint to the college or Co-op Academies Trust.

The procedure is divided into three stages:

  • Stage One (The Informal Stage) – You should speak to a staff member to see if they can resolve the issue.
  • Stage Two (The Formal Stage) – You should put your complaint in writing to the Principal or another senior member of staff. Where the complaint is against the Principal, you should write to the Chair of Governors, Lloyd Thomas by email: (FAO Lloyd Thomas) or by letter to: Lloyd Thomas, Chair of Governors, Connell Co-op College, 301 Alan Turing Way, Manchester M11 3BS.
  • Stage Three (Formal Resolution) – This is the final stage. It involves a panel hearing with governors and an independent person who will review the complaint in its entirety.
