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!

National Number Day

'National Number Day" was celebrated at Cliftonville Primary School.  Although it was Number Day, this year  our theme for the special week leading up to Number Day has been shape, so the children were encouraged to dress up  in shape clothes. Many of the children decorated their shirts with different shapes and numbers and some  made themselves into a shape. One very creative mother even plaited a square into their daughters hair.


During our shape week we have been out in  the community looking for shapes. All our year 1 children visited Dane Park and were amazed by all the different shapes they found. In year 5 the children visited Revolution skate park and as well as enjoying a session on the scooters and the climbing wall, spent time looking at the shapes and sizes of the different ramps. They are currently making a scale model of the skate park in their classrooms. Fantastic art work has been completed in several year groups - both 2 dimensional and 3 dimensional. A highlight for our younger children was a visit from a magician, who showed them lots of shape tricks. They thoroughly enjoyed watching shapes disappear and change all by magic!


It was a fantastic week at Cliftonville Primary School, with the children learning so much about shape while thoroughly enjoying themselves.
