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!

The Roman invasion!

At Cliftonville Primary School the year 3 pupils have been having  a fun time learning about Romans. In order to experience some aspects of life for people living during the Roman times the children took part in a special Roman Day. The children all dressed up as Roman citizens and enjoyed a number of workshops throughout the day involving drama, pottery, dance.


One child explained, "We had to eat like Romans and dance like Romans. It was great!"


The children made Roman lamps and re-enacted battles at the Colosseum. They made Roman shields and took part in a Roman trail around the school. Laura Powell, year 3 teacher said, "The day was a real success, the children learned so much, and by the end of the day were talking excitedly about many aspects of life in Roman times."
