Welcome to the Flying Start Federation which comprises of two small village primary schools, Parkham and Buckland Brewer. The Federation, was officially formed in January 2012 and has a single Governing Body of twelve local people plus the Executive Headteacher. 

The Federation provides excellent opportunities for teachers and other staff to develop their professional expertise which directly impacts on the quality of teaching and learning for the children. Staff are able to share their best practice within a professional learning community developing an exciting and purposeful curriculum for all our children.
All of our work and development is driven by making each of our schools exciting, vibrant, inclusive learning organisations which always put children first.
