At Devonshire Road, we have redesigned our curriculum based on our 3B’s (Be Kind, Be Curious, Be The Best You Can Be), along with our 2 main school drivers: Closing the Vocabulary Gap, and Choices. Our redeveloped curriculum offer ensures that all the statutory National Curriculum objectives are covered and also provides opportunities to further broaden the children’s knowledge through a range of contexts.
Please see our updated Curriculum Statement/Curriculum Policy, which will provide more detail around our Intent, Implementation and Impact of our curriculum.

Our Curriculum Layers
At Devonshire Road, we teach phonics through a systematic synthetic phonics program named 'Song of Sounds', which runs from EYFS to Y2. The program teaches children to read and write by introducing children to the sounds that they can hear in words (phonemes) and their written equivalent (graphemes). Children learn to blend sounds together to read words and segment words in order to spell them. 'Song of Sounds' is a multi-sensory phonics program; it is hands-on and interactive with music, movement and practical activities at its core, to ensure children enjoy the phonics learning process. The program ensures that children become fluent readers and knowledgeable spellers by the end of KS1. More information can be found on their website, which can be found here.
Devonshire Road Primary School aims to reflect the multi faith community it serves in both its collective worship and its Religious Education provision within the school. We also ensure that we fulfil all the government`s statutory guidelines as regards to worship and Religious Education.
Parents have the right to withdraw their children from all or part of Religious Education teaching and also from collective worship.
