School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
The school is much larger than the average-sized primary school. The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs is higher than average. The proportion of disadvantaged pupils supported by the pupil premium funding is well above the national average. (The pupil premium is additional funding to support pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and those children who are looked after by the local authority.) Most pupils are of White British heritage. Children in the early years are in Nursery part time and in Reception classes full time.

The school has a breakfast club and after-school club run by the governing body. The school meets the government floor standards, which are the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in English and mathematics by the end of Year 6. Devonshire Primary Academy converted to become an academy on 1 September 2013. When its predecessor school, Devonshire Primary School was last inspected by Ofsted, it was judged to be good overall. It is part of the Blackpool Multi Academy Trust.

The headteacher is providing support to a local primary school as part of the multi academy trust.
