The Culm Valley Federation
The Culm Valley Federation consists of three schools, Plymtree C of E Primary School, Culmstock Primary School and Kentisbeare C of E Primary School. The schools are geographically very close and have worked together for many years as part of the Culm Valley Learning Community and ‘Culm Valley Small Schools’ network. The Federation was formed on the 31st October 2011 to formalise the existing collaboration between the 3 schools.
As a federation we are passionately pursuing educational excellence with our children and communities for their lifetimes. We are able to offer ‘the best of both worlds.’ Individually, we are able to offer all the advantages of a small school, e.g. the caring and supportive ‘family type’ environment but as a group we can also offer the benefits of the larger school e.g. extended educational experiences for all our children.
The Federation has one governing body with representatives elected from all 3 schools.
