Welcome to Acorn Federation

Welcome to Acorn Federation

Welcome to the website of the Acorn Federation. We are two vibrant, creative and supportive schools where adults and children learn together. They are

Both schools are in rural parts of East Devon, on the boundaries of Devon, Dorset and Somerset, but only eight miles apart.

Each school serves its own community and has its own unique identity. Now working together as one organisation, with one Governing body and a leadership team, we are able to offer our children the highest possible standard of teaching and learning

Our federation prides itself on providing a friendly, caring, family environment within which children can flourish.  We seek to stimulate the love of learning in our children so that they want to learn for themselves and achieve to the very best of their abilities.   As Church schools, our Christian values underpin everything we do and we value the strengths of each unique individual. Every child is encouraged to find their best-selves within a setting where they are happy, well cared for and, most importantly, where they care for each other.

I look forward to welcoming you to Acorn Federation.
