Completed Senco training and attend any relevant training when required.

What is your policy on compliments, complaints, concerns?

I am willing to listen to any compliments, concerns or complaint, hopefully on hearing any concerns or complaint we could discuss a way forward together. On starting at the setting you would have access to a copy of the complaints policy which outlines the procedure.
