To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what representations he has received on his Department’s guidance on school complaints procedures, LEA/01/0180/2003. (127412)

During Anti-Bullying Week 2006, the Office of the Children’s Commissioner (OCC) launched a draft report into school bullying complaints procedures. The Department is facilitating a consultation with key stakeholders on behalf of the OCC and expects to receive the final report in April/May 2007. In addition, the Local Government Ombudsman recently wrote to the Department about the possibility of extending his remit to cover the internal management of schools. No other representations have been received by the Department on school complaints procedures.
