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!

BBC Ten Pieces

We are very excited to be part of the BBC Ten Pieces Music project.  Mrs Ross, our specialist music teacher, is leading this at Cliftonville:


  • The project will help us to deliver key aspects of the educational curriculum, including learning about the works of great composers, composing and performing
  • The project is endorsed by music and arts and education bodies
  • It is a great opportunity to be part of an inspirational national BBC initiative
  • We have access to free BBC educational resources
  • It will give us an opportunity to work in partnership with local arts and music organisations such as Music Education Hubs and Music Services, to enhance the work already being done in our classrooms
  • Participation will also develop children’s creativity, confidence and collaborative skills
