Cliftonville Primary and Pre-School is an excellent school the children are happy and thriving. The dedication and hard work from the entire school team is outstanding and clear to see. 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. Presence of Teachers and caretakers at pick up and drop off really help you feel safe. The well-being of the pupils is outstanding. They have gone above and beyond to make sure my children have felt safe at school. My child is happy to come to school, the staff are visible and approachable. It is a lovely school with a welcoming feel and a positive atmosphere. Highly visible leadership team. A feeling of pride in the school. Supportive school for both parents and children. 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!

Language Ambassadors

Some of our children are acting as Language Ambassadors to help build first language supportive networks in our school community including helping new families to Cliftonville Primary and Pre-School.  


We are very lucky, and so proud, of the children in our school who speak more than one language. We have families in our school who come from all over the world including Russia, Slovakia, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Poland, Albania, Sweden, Barbados, Portugal, Romania, Latvia, Sudan, China, South America, the Phillipines, India, the Czech Republic, Greece and Vietnam. 


This amazing diversity means that we can often offer children arriving from overseas a friend who can communicate with them and help them to settle into school life. Language Ambassadors have formed an integral part of the everyday lives of many pupils at Cliftonville Primary and Pre-School. Each year, children who demonstrate the right qualities, and who speak more than one language fluently, are selected to provide help and support to new pupils who arrive here with difficulties in speaking English.


Our Language Ambassadors for 2018 - 2019 can help with...

Tagalog, Latvian, Bengali, Slovak, Czech, Turkish, Greek, Polish, Chinese, Russian, Dari & Farsi Persian, Portuguese, and Lithuanian.
