A SPECIAL partnership between Chulmleigh Pre-school and Chulmleigh Primary school will be recognised at a ceremony next week.
The two schools were the first in Devon to begin working together to share the same space and resources in 2004.
The schools have now attained Foundation Stage Unit status and on Wednesday (September 29), a plaque to mark the achievement will be officially unveiled by Devon County Council's Executive Director for Children and Young People's Services, Anne Whiteley.
Chumleigh head teacher, Richard Samson, said: "It was our dream to provide very high quality early years education, free of transition, where children are taught by a team of highly qualified professionals led by a qualified teacher.
