Ofsted Inspection January 2020


A full Ofsted Inspection was completed at Devonshire Primary Academy at the beginning of January 2020.

Whilst we recognise the identified areas for improvement, we were delighted with the praise given for our strong personal development, good behaviour and good practice in our Early Years.

Following the inspection, we have clarity around the actions we need to take to progress the Academy’s Ofsted rating.  The pupils at Devonshire Primary Academy are an absolute credit to the school and we firmly believe that they deserve the best educational opportunities available to them; it is because of this we that we are swiftly addressing the actions outlined in the report.

I would encourage you to read the report in detail – you can be absolutely assured that the Academy is providing a safe environment for learning and that the education across the whole school is improving.

Devonshire Primary Academy is on a progressive journey and it is a privilege to be leading the school as it continues to support the pupils, their families and the wider community.

Mr D.P. Simm, Headteacher
