Croscombe CofE & Stoke St Michael Primary Federation

This page contains the collection of federation policies. The majority relate to the federation, but there are separate policies for school admissions. This is due to their slightly different status with Croscombe being a VA Church of England school and Stoke St Michael being a local authority community school.

Sometimes we may need to share information and work in partnership with other agencies when there are concerns about a child's welfare. We will ensure that our concerns about our pupils are discussed with his/her parents/carers first, unless we have reason to believe that such a move would be contrary to the child's welfare.

Looked After and previously Looked After Children - we follow the Department for Education statutory guidance - February 2018

We actively support the Government's Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
