When you Insert Header and Footer then DESIGN TAB will show up
Select option Different First Page and hit enter.

Header and Footer will start from Page 2

Step 1
Click at the very end of the page that sits immediately before the page that you want to display the footer.

Step 2
Click the Page Layout tab on the Ribbon. Click the "Breaks" icon, in the upper right corner of the Page Setup group. On the drop-down menu, click "Next Page."

Step 3
Click at the very bottom of the page you want to display the footer, at the end of all the text and other content.

Step 4
Click the "Breaks" icon again, and then click "Next Page" again.

Step 5
Click the "Insert" tab on the Ribbon. Click the "Footer" button; on the drop-down menu, click "Edit Footer."

Step 6
Click the "Link to Previous" button, in the Navigation group on the Ribbon.

Step 7
Scroll down to the next page; click on the footer on that page. Click the "Link to Previous" button again.

Step 8
Scroll back up to the page that you want to display the footer, and click on the footer.

Step 9

One thing that I think Ramin has missed in his description, put the cursor at the beginning of page 1 (Ctrl + Home) and then press Ctrl + Enter to insert a page break and give you a new blank page 1. Press Ctrl + Home again to get to the beginning of the new page 1. You can then insert a "section break - new page" so that the Header and Footer settings are different for that section or choose the "Different First page" option as per earlier suggestion. You can probably now delete the Page Break at the top of the old page 1.

Thanks Rob for your attention, let me mix your comment with mine.

Put the cursor at the beginning of page 1 (Ctrl + Home) and then press Ctrl + Enter to insert a page break and give you a new blank page 1.  Press Ctrl + Home again to get to the beginning of the new page 1.


                                                      * * * * *

Now you need to move the cursor at the very end of the  page you created (new page).

Click the Page Layout tab on the Ribbon. Click the "Breaks" icon, in the upper right corner of the Page Setup group. On the drop-down menu,  click "Next Page."

 Click the "Insert" tab on the Ribbon. Click the "Header" button; on the drop-down menu, click "Edit Header."

 Click the "Link to Previous" button, in the Navigation group on the Ribbon.

 Scroll down to the next page; click on the footer on that page. Click the "Link to Previous" button again.

 Click the button labeled "Close Header and Footer."

Now click on new first page header and delete the text.

you don't need both to get a single page before your text!

go to the start of the document and create a new section:
Page Layout tab ―> Page Setup group ―> click on Breaks  ―> select Section Breaks ―> select Next Page
now go to page 2
Insert tab ―> Header & Footer group ―> click on Header  ―> select Edit Header
and the Header & Footer Tools is displayed

before modifying page 1, uncheck Different First Page box AND deselect Link to Pervious

you are now all set to go.new page
