Devonshire Primary is situated in South Sutton. With a green site, the school welcomes a varied catchment with up to 47% EAL pupils. The school has a separate nursery building.
The atmosphere at any school is created by the contributions of everybody within the school community. Our school has a friendly learning environment, created by a hard-working staff team, a supportive governing body, enthusiastic parents and inquisitive children. Expectations for behaviour and learning are high from the Nursery up to Year 6. We are looking to nurture the spirit of lifelong learning within our school whilst promoting tolerance, creativity, fairness and perseverance personal qualities which will help our children make a positive contribution to society, now and in the future.
Our most recent Ofsted report (October 2015) recognises the direction in which we are moving. The challenge now is to become even better. We welcome the judgements of the Ofsted inspectors, but the report itself is merely a signpost towards what we are trying to achieve at Devonshire. We aim to become a source of even greater pride within the local community.
