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.

Children must be at school by 8.50am. Teaching finishes at 3.10pm.

At Cliftonville Primary School we expect good attendance and punctuality.   Our aim is for 100% attendance and punctuality.


We believe that:

cryingAttendance is closely linked to achievement.  The better your child's attendance, the better their grades are!

cryingPunctuality is important. It is habit forming and shows commitment to the importance of working and learning


Good attendance will be celebrated through weekly assemblies, the awarding of attendance badges and information shared on the home page of our website.


Mrs Saddington and Mrs Sear are our Education Attendance Officers.  You will see them on the gate every morning and evening - come rain or shine!  There is lots they can help with to support families with improving attendance.  To help at those times of emergency, they can collect children from home or supervise children before the start of breakfast club.  Mrs Sear can support your child in writing, with you, Health Care Plans where long-term medical conditions impact on attendance.


We set a very high bar for attendance because we want the very best for your child.  If, despite the outstanding support we provide, your child does not attend regularly and on time we will use Penalty Notice fines for unauthorised absence.


A true partnership between home and school is vital to good attendance and we appreciate your support.
