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!

Open Day 18th November


We welcomed a record number of families to our Open Day this week, many of whom have not had any previous connection with the pre-school or primary school.  Feedback was very positive and everyone particularly loved the new building, opened just this month, which provides new accommodation for Year R and Year 1.  Parents who were not able to attend are warmly welcome to visit this term - please contact the school office on 01843 227575 or email  We always encourage 'second visits' for parents who would like to see even more of the school and the wonderful provision we offer. 


We took a call today from a prospective parent who attended the open day Wednesday. She said she was really impressed and absolutely loved the school. She said she didn't need a second visit as she was convinced this is the school for her child & went straight home to do the application.  It was the ethos & feel of the school that really reminded her of the primary school that she went to as a child.
