The Culm Valley Federation

Inspire, Believe, Achieve

Welcome to the Culm Valley Federation. 

The Federation was formed on the 31st October 2011 to formalise an existing collaboration between Plymtree C of E Primary School, Culmstock Primary School and Kentisbeare C of E Primary School.

Our schools are geographically and spiritually very close and have worked together for many years. 

As well as sharing leadership, as a Federation we are able to collectively support one another in our pursuit of educational excellence through shared experience, skills and resources. Individually, our small schools offer all the advantages of a close community, providing a caring and supportive environment. As a group, we can offer all the benefits of a larger school including a wider breadth of opportunities and learning experiences for all our children. 

We have one governing body which represents the interests of all schools.  Our aim is to challenge, develop and support our leadership team to achieve the best teaching and learning environment for all our children to thrive. To set a benchmark for academic achievement within a nurturing preserve of inclusivity, opportunity, cultivation and provision and a culture of perseverance, integrity, respect, aspiration, and team spirit.

Further information about each school can be found on their respective websites. Please see links below.
