Visions and Values

First Federation


Since 2009 Salcombe Primary School has been a member of the Devon First Federation. The First Federation believes that: All are created in the image of God and uniquely talented by Him. Everyone is a child of God and immeasurably loved by Him.

Schools in the Federation: Blackpool, Chudleigh-Knighton, Lady Seaward's, Newton Ferrers, Salcombe, Aveton Gifford, Brixington.

The Ethos of our Federation


The First Federation believes firmly that Christian principles must underpin all our work with children.  We want our children to grow up in our school to understand the Christian values of love, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self control identified in Galatians Chapter 5 verses 22,23.


We recognise each school's historic foundation and will preserve and develop their religious character in accordance with the principles of the Church of England and in partnership with the Churches at parish and diocesan level.


Each school aims to serve its community by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice.  It encourages an understanding of the meaning and significance of faith, and promotes Christian values through the experience it offers to all its pupils.
