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!

Sport Relief raises £1039

Children at Cliftonville Primary School had lots of fun raising money for Sport Relief on Friday.  Members of the School Council sold Sport Relief wristbands for the children to wear and the children dressed up in their best sporty gear.  Key Stage 1 children paid 50p to take part in a number of activities in the “Lunchtime Fun Hour” and Key Stage 2 classes competed in the “Shoot the hoop” competition of which class could score the most basketball goals.  The competition was very close but was won by class 3P.  The School Council also hosted a special Sport Relief themed “Bake Off” which saw an amazing 36 decorated cakes entered by children and their parents.  All the cakes were absolutely fantastic and incredibly creative meaning the School Council had a very tough job to judge the winners.  There were football, rugby, basketball and tennis ball shaped cakes; swimming pools; football pitches and many more!  School Council chose the top 3 cakes which were given as raffle prizes and the remaining cakes were sold on the playground after school as whole cakes or slices.  The cake stall was very busy and everyone was very impressed by the quality of the cakes and effort that had gone into making them.  The winning cake was made by Hope in Year 1 with Elliot and Antonina in Year 4 coming second and third.  The children’s efforts raised an incredible £1039.50 for the charity.
