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.

Head Teacher's message September 2020

I would like to extend the warmest of welcomes as we start back to a new school year. I am very proud and privileged, as Head Teacher, to be leading Cliftonville Primary School with such an amazing team of committed professionals, parents and children and am very excited by our future together seeing the school going from strength to strength. We have come through some challenging times over the last six months but the strength of our community has shone through. This is likely to continue for the foreseeable future but I am confident that by working together, the children will continue to grow and be fully supported to be the best that they can be.


Our mission, at Cliftonville Primary and Pre-School, as an outstanding school, is to inspire children to achieve more than they ever believed possible. We want every member of our school community to be challenged and supported to be the very best they can be. Through the high-quality learning experiences & curriculum, we look to improve the life-chances of our children; to educate the whole child so they can thrive in a changing world.


Cliftonville is a unique place which believes truly that there are no barriers to success, just hurdles that can be got over with the right support, thinking, drive and determination.

We believe here that team work, collaboration and community spirit are vital ingredients to any success. We believe strongly in the team around an individual child with parents, the school and other organisations all working together.


At Cliftonville Primary and Pre-School we drive this belief through our school values of:

Independence    Safe and Settled   Resilience   Respect    Aspiration    Learning   Community


I am very excited by this next chapter of Cliftonville Primary and Pre-Schools’ journey and look forward to taking you on this ride with us!
