The Croscombe and Stoke St Michael Primary Federation is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment.
We have a number of policies and procedures in place that contribute to our safeguarding commitment, including our Safeguarding Policy which can be viewed in the Policies section of our website.
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.
We actively support the Government’s Prevent Agenda to counter radicalism and extremism.
Our Designated Safeguarding Lead (DSL) is Mr Steve Heath. Our Deputy DSLs are Mel Vincent and Bill Moore (Senior Teachers at Stoke St Michael and Croscombe respectively) and also Kelly Murphy of Little Acorns.

Barnardo’s have recently sent around an interesting booklet called “Childhoods in a Digital Age”. It is full of thought provoking facts and figures and well worth a look.
We have copies of the slides from our recent e-safety talk for parents. Please have a look at them if you weren’t able to attend. If you need any clarification, please get in touch.
Safeguarding is everybody’s responsibility.
