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.

Algebra week and NSPCC Number day

Number Day, 5th December 2014, is a national initiative organised by the NSPCC, where money is raised through number related activities. At Cliftonville Primary School all the children were invited to come in dressed in numbers; there was great enthusiasm with many children decorating a shirt, or adding numbers to a hair band, or even making a calculator! Our fantastic staff also made a great effort.  As well as dressing in numbers the children have been working on number related activities all week. In reception and key stage 1 the children have been making number mosaics which we will use in our outside areas to help children recognise numbers and write them correctly. In key stage 2 the children have been testing their mathematical skills in an orienteering challenge. Throughout the school children have been solving mathematical challenges looking at early algebra skills e.g finding missing numbers and being able to generalise about number relationships. All ages have learned so much about numbers this week, it has been great to hear the children talking enthusiastically about their maths and solving problems.
