On your page one - Insert -> Break ->Next page

now, On Page two double click on the header or view header footer and you will see the header/footer toolbar - The fifth button from the right "Link to previous" - click on that

Now do the same for the footer The fifth button from the right "Link to previous" - click on that

Then goto the header/footer of page one and you can delete it.

Disnesh recommends creating a new section.

Note that you can also set 'Different first page' on the Layout Tab of the Page Setup dialogue.

Check "Page Setup".  

  Select Layout
        Under "Headers and footers" make sure different first page is selected.

Page 1 header will disappear.
