\thispagestyle{empty} may be what you want.  Here is a short example:

------------------------------------------------------------------
\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}

\thispagestyle{empty}
This is the first page.

\clearpage
This is the second page.

\end{document}
------------------------------------------------------------------
