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!

21st March is World Down Syndrome day.

The 21st of March is World Down Syndrome day. The significance of this date is that its the 21st day of the 3rd month to signify the uniqueness of the triplication of chromosome 21, which causes Down Syndrome.


It is a worldwide initiative to invite people to wear crazy/ fun socks on this day. The idea of socks was created due to chromosomes are shaped 'like socks' and people with Down Syndrome have an additional chromosome. 


To raise awareness of Down Syndrome, we would like to participate. We are asking all staff and children ( and parents if you wish!) to wear the most fun socks ever on the 21st of March. 


Please note this is not for a donation, just to raise awareness.
