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!

Transition into school:

We are already planning for a smooth transition into school for your child. Once your child’s place has been confirmed, we will invite you into school for our ‘Welcome to Cliftonville’ information evening to be held on Wednesday 15th June at 6pm.


There will also be two, one-hour sessions on Wednesday 29th June and Thursday 7th July where we hope to invite you and your child into school to meet their class teacher, their new classmates and spend time in their classroom environment. You will be able to sign up for the Rising 5s sessions at the information evening.


We will be in touch with your child’s nursery very soon to speak to their Key Person to ensure that transition into school is as smooth as possible and that we know your child before they start with us. Once this has been completed, we will send you the details of your child’s class teacher and their start dates before the Rising 5s start.
