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

At Devonshire Primary Academy, open methods of communication are well-established so that a shared responsibility for the development of the academy are much in evidence.  The candidate appointed will be joining an imaginative and mutually-supportive team where opportunities for professional development are given high priority and where the creative TA4 can contribute to the academy as a whole.  We are looking for a candidate who will need to:

  • Have a warm and friendly personality;
  • Have high expectations for pupil achievement;
  • Have the ability to motivate and inspire pupils;
  • Be flexible; and
  • Be resilient and embrace school improvement with passion and vigour, knowing that learners are at the heart of everything that we do.

Devonshire Primary Academy is a happy, exciting and productive school with a wealth of opportunities for our children and staff.  We can offer you: 

  • The chance to be part of a closely connected, dedicated and hardworking staff;
  • A friendly and supportive whole school staff team;
  • Opportunities for professional development; and
  • The opportunity to work in a school which is at the heart of its community and always looking for innovative ways to provide the best education.
