One of my teachers gave me a 3 effort and she makes me really annoyed and I am so sad because she never grades or marks my work and says that I’m doing bad so I should be moved down should I let my parents complain

You should allow your parents to raise concerns in a mutually supportive environment. If this 3 (which I presume isn't great) has come out of nowhere then it's a justified exercise to question the motivation behind it. Also, bold statements like 'should be moved down' shouldn't be surprises. If you've submitted work regularly and it hasn't been marked then the teacher isn't necessarily fulfilling their side of the education agreement and that could be challenged.

Or, take the opportunity of a new start in a different group?

Don't fuss too much about "effort" grades, pay more attention to the actual grade. (at my school it was very much possible to get high grades and a very poor effort grade and vice versa, it really didn't mean much)

does it bother you that much? i get 3s and 4s, and even got a 5 before due to a certain teacher... teachers' perceptions of your effort shouldn't matter, they really mean nothing anyway.

Let your parents go in and discuss the matter.The teacher should be telling you what you need to improve your effort grade.Are you sure you are handing it in on time.If you are, and you have asked her what she requires from you then followed that advice then it is time to send in the seniors!I would advise they write a physical letter to the head and outline the problem it usually speeds things up.What are you getting for your attainment level.
I once had a biology teacher who gave me B- for every piece of work I handed in for years.I was a straight A student and I thought I must just of been rubbish at Biology.Come year 9 we got a new teacher and suddenly I was getting A's and A- I mentioned this to a friend in the year above who said did you notice that the only girls that teacher gave top marks too were pretty and skinny and usually blonde.I realised it was true and at the end of that year he married a former 6th former who fitted that description!I never regained my confidence in Biology but it did teach me a lesson.
After that if I ever started getting unexpetedly low grades I would ask where I was going wrong and state I intended to get a high mark in that subject.It usually resulted in instantly higher grades.Sometimes teachers just misjudge pupils abilities by making assumptions due to things like what grades your friends get.This even happened to me when training to be a teacher.And some teachers are just poor at their job!
Let us know how you get on.

You should ask your teacher why they have rated your effort levels at 3 and what change they would like to see from you in the future.
