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.

Major maths success


This week at Cliftonville saw us celebrating some fantastic mathematical accomplishments. Not only were there examples of wonderful maths going on throughout the school by groups and individuals in the classrooms, but we also entered some very challenging competitions. Our 'Young mathematician of the year team' competed against St Faiths School in Ash for a place in the competition finals at Cambridge University. We do not know the outcome of this round of the competition yet, but we are immensely proud that our team got through to the regional finals - they are winners already.


Some of our year 5 and 6 children entered the 'Primary Maths Challenge' this week. They had to answer 25 very challenging questions in just 45 minutes. We had three Gold winners - Leah Reagan year 6, Amy Joseph year 6  and Oscar Dobson year 5. Pictured are all the bronze, silver and gold winners, but everyone who entered did brilliantly. The questions were really difficult and no one gave up. It was a fantastic example of the children living out our school values, aspiring high, being resilient, showing respect and enjoying learning.
