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!

Chat & Giggle sessions!


4us2 has won a £28,000 grant from the Lloyds Foundation. They will use the money to run weekly “Chat & Giggle” play and support sessions around Thanet for families of children with disabilities. 4us2’s manager Andrea Bennett, who is herself mum to a severely disabled teenager, said, “Isolation is a real issue for parents and carers of children with disabilities. You can feel trapped in your own home and by the problems that surround you. We’re running these sessions to reach out to families and give the children a safe place to play while the parents and carers can get some support and make new connections, and hopefully take some steps to overcoming that isolation. We’re really grateful to the Lloyds Foundation for making this work possible.”

Chat & Giggle sessions will run on Thursday mornings in Thanet.  4us2 staff will be there to lead the sessions and will bring special equipment like fibre optic lights, a dark tent and sensory toys and puppets for the children to play with. Parents whose children are at school / college are welcome to come too. Full details of the dates and times of sessions are on their website, on the events calendar.
