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!

Easter bonnet parade

On Thursday we had our annual Easter bonnet parade at Cliftonville Primary School. As usual the children and parents had pulled out all stops to make a spectacular array of bonnets featuring everything from Easter bunnies and chicks to dinosaurs! All 360 children in year R, 1 and 2 wore a hat and when they all sat together in the hall it was a sea of colour. We invited members of the local community in to hear our songs and to see our hats in the morning, and we had our newly hatched chicks as special guests too! With our beautiful singing, colourful hats and lovely little chicks, we hope our guests who come from the local area, Grosvenor Court care home and Holy Trinity Church had a nice time, and left knowing how lovely our school and its children are.

Last year we were so disappointed that the rain cancelled our parade in the afternoon to parents.

However this year the sun shone beautifully and our children were able to proudly display their hats and waved happily to parents, friends and relatives who turned up in their hundreds to see them
