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 hat parade!


On Wednesday the children at Cliftonville Primary School celebrated Easter by having an Easter hat parade. All the children in Reception and Key stage 1 had made fantastic hats, some of them lit up, others contained a multitude of different animals, mostly chicks, but they were all colourful and beautifully made. The children loved wearing them and enjoyed showing them to our friends from Holy Trinity Church and from the road outside our school. This year we challenged our guests to come with their Easter hat too, and we were amazed at how many did. We are very grateful for the support and interest our friends and neighbours show in the work of the school, and even more so for this event as unfortunately the Easter hat parade for the parents had to be cancelled due to the rain.


Despite the disappointment of not being able to show their hats off to their parents the children enjoyed seeing what their friends had made and gave the teachers a very difficult job in judging who were the winners. It is so nice to see the school hall ablaze with colour and our Easter hats this year certainly did just that.
