Atlantic Coast Co-operative Trust

Last year Instow consulted all stakeholders on becoming a full member of the Atlantic Coast Co-operative Trust. The documents below give details of the consultation. We have kept them on our website for your information.


  • All parents and carers received a paper copy of the letter, the leaflet and response form. You are welcome to read on-screen or print off any of these documents.
  • Paper copies were also held in the school office for anyone to borrow and read at home.
  • 18th May to 2nd July 2015 was the consultation period. After which, Governors read all responses and made a final decision, based on the proposals.
  • Governors unanimously agreed that Instow should change its status to a foundation trust school and become a full member of the Atlantic Coast Co-operative Trust, now working on school-to-school support with eight other primary schools in North Devon. 


With best wishes,
