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!

'Flash' the greyhound visits Y5

Year 5 have been reading and studying the book "Born To Run" by Michael Morpurgo about the many lives of a racing greyhound.  The book has really captured the children's interest and imagination and they have produced some fantastic descriptive and persuasive pieces in writing.  On Thursday 25th September they were surprised when a real life greyhound arrived in their classroom!  Flash is a retired greyhound who was homed through the Kent Greyhound Rescue Team.  They kindly agreed to allow one of their volunteers and dogs to visit the school to answer questions and allow the children to have an up close and personal meeting with a greyhound.  Many thanks to KGR and Katrina Farley for making this happen. 


The Year 5 team would like to apologise to parents if your children are all asking to adopt a greyhound now!
