Devonshire Primary Academy is a coeducational primary school with academy status that is situated at the heart of an area of economic and social deprivation in a densely populated part of Blackpool.

The staff team is made up of approximately 80 teaching and non-teaching members and we educate learners aged 3 to 11.

We place great emphasis on our ability to provide a secure, caring and welcoming environment in which everyone has pride in themselves and strives to achieve the highest possible standard of learning, behaviour and attitudes. Children start our school with attainment well below that typical for their age and we endeavour to ensure that all children leave our care with a love of education and with the building blocks they need to become confident, life-long learners.

Our dedicated staff, parents and governors all work together to make Devonshire Primary Academy the best environment for our children to thrive.
