Welcome to the First Federation, we are a Multi Academy Trust of Primary Schools across Devon. The Federation began seven years ago as one of the first Primary federations in the country and has grown to include six schools and a Teaching School.
We are currently a rich mixture of Church Schools, large and small, rural and urban. The Trust is built upon a strong family network of schools ‘hardwired’ to collaborate ensuring the highest aspirations for all children. All our schools have improved since joining the federation with two being judged Outstanding and four Good with Outstanding features.
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
