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.

We are very proud of our wonderful Pre-School!  Our children and families are made very welcome and we hope it marks the start of a long and happy educational experience at Cliftonville Primary and Pre-School School.


We provide a high quality education where young children can investigate and explore a well-planned, imaginative and challenging environment both indoors and outside, where they are encouraged to grow and develop at their own pace and where every day is varied, stimulating exciting and above all . . FUN!! We aim to provide carefully planned, fun-filled learning activities which are based on our professional knowledge of how young children learn. Such activities will meet the individual needs of your child to learn, experiment, make progress and develop - emotionally, socially, academically and physically.  There is a key focus on literacy skills including speaking and listening and, as they are ready, learning phonics for reading.  We have 52 places split equally across either morning or afternoon sessions.

If your child turns 3 by this September and you would like to visit the Pre-School, please make an appointment through the main school office (01843 227575).  We would love you to see us in action!
