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!

Spelling bee competition

Dear children and parents,




Spelling bee Friday 28th November  for Year 3 & 4

               Friday 5th December for Year 5 & 6


We are excited to announce a new spelling bee competition for our KS2 pupils.  The purpose of this is to help children improve their spelling, increase their vocabularies and develop correct English usage that will help them all their lives.


There will be two ways to enter:


  1. Children can enter as an individual.They will be asked to spell thirty words, chosen at random, from the Year 3/4 or 5/6 spelling list overleaf. They will be given the word to spell by their teacher.

  2. Children can enter as a team of up to four – the team must be made up of pupils from one year group. They will be asked to spell forty words, chosen at random, from the appropriate spelling list overleaf.  In rotation, they will take it in turns to answer.


Individual pupils and teams will compete in the hall in front of their classmates but don’t worry… we will give them lots of support and encouragement!


All children entering will receive a certificate and there are fantastic prizes for those scoring maximum marks.   The spelling list has been copied, laminated and displayed around the school….so children can learn them on the playground, while queuing for lunch, etc!


Please encourage your child to take part.
