The Mendip Edge Federation comprises four schools determined to achieve excellence through collaboration, partnership and challenge whilst maintaining their individuality.

The Mendip Edge Federation was established in January 2014 as a hard federation between Cheddar First School, Draycott & Rodney Stoke Church of England VA First School, Fairlands Middle School and Shipham Church of England VC First School.

We aim to:

  • Promote the well-being of pupils.
  • Maximise the impact of our shared expertise and resources at all levels.
  • Learn from our strengths, recognise areas for development and support change.
  • Constantly challenge ourselves and each other.
  • Strive for excellence, high levels of achievement and offer outstanding opportunities for all our pupils and staff.
