It is a lovely school with a welcoming feel and a positive atmosphere. Much more visible leadership team. A feeling of pride in the school. As parents we feel really proud that our son comes to such a great school, which we knew was fabulous whether OFSTED told us or not! The trips that Mrs Glover & Mrs Sear have been putting together are a fantastic idea and hope they continue. I am extremely happy with Daniel's progress since starting at the Pre-School. He seems to have made a lovely group of friends and enjoys coming in every day. I can't wait to see him progress further. Senior & middle leaders know the strengths of their staff & deploy them accordingly. More tailored support for different groups of learners has been a really big & positive change. Thank you! The Headteacher has a clear vision for the school & her ambition for it to continue to make improvements is shared by her senior team & staff.

Easter bonnet parade

On Thursday we had our annual Easter bonnet parade at Cliftonville Primary School. As usual the children and parents had pulled out all stops to make a spectacular array of bonnets featuring everything from Easter bunnies and chicks to dinosaurs! All 360 children in year R, 1 and 2 wore a hat and when they all sat together in the hall it was a sea of colour. We invited members of the local community in to hear our songs and to see our hats in the morning, and we had our newly hatched chicks as special guests too! With our beautiful singing, colourful hats and lovely little chicks, we hope our guests who come from the local area, Grosvenor Court care home and Holy Trinity Church had a nice time, and left knowing how lovely our school and its children are.

Last year we were so disappointed that the rain cancelled our parade in the afternoon to parents.

However this year the sun shone beautifully and our children were able to proudly display their hats and waved happily to parents, friends and relatives who turned up in their hundreds to see them
