Our vision statement: Devonshire Primary School is a caring community enthusiastic for everyone's success

Headteacher's welcome

Mr Kearsey at his deskMy name is Martin Kearsey and I am very proud to be the Headteacher of Devonshire Primary School.

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 (March 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.

I will never tire of reminding each and every member of the Devonshire team that we all aspire to one outcome: the best possible future for each one of our children. In practice, this means encouraging even our youngest children to set high expectations for their own performance in every aspect of school life. We want our children to be the best they can be. We want our children to be hungry to succeed in the classroom and in the competitive arena. We want our children to be excellent ambassadors for Devonshire Primary when they continue their education at whichever high school is fortunate enough to inherit them.
