  6. Complaints Process
     
    • If a parent has a concern or question about SRE they are best to approach their child’s classroom teacher.
    • The Classroom teacher will then contact the SRE teacher or MAFT SRE Co-ordinator to discuss the concern or question:
      • If the concern can be easily resolved, the classroom teacher will inform the parent of the resolution. The SRE teacher is to inform the CoastEC SRE Driver and CoastEC Kids Ministry Pastor of the concern and its resolution. If possible, it is best that this be done within 7 days.
      • If the concern cannot be easily resolved, the SRE teacher will contact the MAFT SRE Co-ordinator and the CoastEC SRE Driver and the CoastEC Kids Ministry Pastor to seek advise. This must be done within 48 hours. It is expected that steps be taken towards resolving the complaint within 7 days.
