Congratulations to Musbury Primary School, Sidmouth CE Primary School, Hawkchurch CE Primary School and St Francis preschool for being rated good at their recent Ofsted inspection!

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 fourteen schools and a Teaching School.
We are currently a rich mixture of nine Church schools, and five 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 Trust with three being judged Outstanding and six Good (as of 1st Dec 2018). Our two latest joiner schools are Rockbeare CE Primary School (which joined on 1st December 2017) and Willowbank Primary School (which joined on 1st September 2018).
Our driving vision is that every child is inspired to learn and is taught by an excellent teacher. We are an inclusive Trust and want to meet the needs of the 'whole child'. Our vision of growth encompasses Church and community schools and as we grow we are determined to ensure we are always putting children first.
