Welcome to the webpage for the Federation of Cutcombe and Timberscombe Church of England First Schools!

Founded by Richard Elsworth in 1714

Our two small village schools share a headteacher and a governing body.  Recently judged "Outstanding" and "Good with Outstanding Features" by OFSTED, our schools offer very individual personalised teaching with small class sizes and a friendly, nurturing family atmosphere. 

Ethos Statement of the Beacon Federation

The Federation aims to serve its communities by providing an education of the highest quality within the context of Christian belief and practice.

It will offer an enhanced learning environment through increased interaction of children, staff and parents.

The sharing of resources and staff expertise will give a greater capacity for curriculum development and will promote and sustain high standards of teaching and learning.

Safeguarding Statement:

Our children's welfare is of paramount importance. Please help us to achieve this by being vigilant and reporting any concerns to the school.We have staff, trained in Safeguarding, who will be happy to follow up your concerns. Alternatively, you can receive advice from Somerset Direct on 0300 123 2224. Both schools fully recognise their legal responsibilities with regards to safeguarding and the contribution they can make to protect children and support pupils in schools. We recognise our role in the implementation of the Prevent Duty Guidance and our statutory duties with regards to FGM.

Safeguarding is Everyone's Responsibilty.
