The First Federation has been named by Sir Michael Wilshaw, Head of Ofsted, as one of the top seven highest performing Multi Academy Trusts in the country (see about us, news articles).

Welcome to First Federation

Welcome to the First Federation, a Multi Academy Trust of Primary Schools across Devon, whose aim is to be outstanding in everything we do.
The Federation began in 2006 as one of the first Primary federations in the country and has grown to include nine schools and a Teaching School.
We are currently a rich mixture of seven Church schools, and two community schools, large and small, rural and urban. The Trust is built upon a strong family network of schools ‘hardwired’ to collaborate to ensure the highest aspirations for all children. All our schools have improved since joining the federation with four being judged Outstanding and three Good with Outstanding features. Three schools joined our Trust this year: Brixington Primary Academy (sponsored), St Leonard's CE Primary School (outstanding) and Westcliff Primary School (sponsored).
Our driving vision is that every child should go to an Outstanding School and be taught by Outstanding Teachers. We are an inclusive Trust and have a vision of growth which encompasses Church and community schools and as we grow we are determined to ensure we are always ‘First for every Child’. Paul Jones OBE
