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!

Save the Children fund visit

 

Over the last year Cliftonville Primary have been working closely with Save the Children on a number of projects, each designed to support our local families. These include Eat, Play and Sleep which encourages the development of a healthy, supportive home in order to positively impact on a child’s development and what they can achieve at school; Families Connect which supports increasing parents’ skills and confidence to support their child’s learning and Take Care which looked at building children’s resilience in everyday life.

 

Today we were fortunate enough to have a number of benefactors of Save the Children in school including the CEO; vice presidents and trustees of Save the Children, Director of programmes; investors and Natasha Kaplinsky the Save the Children Ambassador. After touring the school where they met with children of all ages, they spoke with staff, learning about the impact of these programmes and our partnership approach that we look to develop. It is hoped that by highlighting the positive impact that these programmes have on our community then further investment would be possible in Thanet to support all Thanet children and their families.

 

As usual, all our children were polite and courteous with our visitors, obviously proud of their work and their school and wanting to talk about what they were doing at every opportunity.

Everyone, without exception, was massively impressed with our children and the school and we hope to continue our partnership with Save the Children moving forward in this year and beyond.
