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.
