    I always have the page numbering in the footers. I do believe that if you insert a section break in the text, the next page will restart at 1. I'll see if I can't try it out to make sure.

    EDIT: That seems to work for me. I went to Insert and then Break. I selected "Next Page" from the dialog box. It worked fine. The only thing is that it moved the heading to the next page. I am sure that there is a way to do that without moving the text to another page.
