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!

World class sprinter visits the school

On Tuesday 18th October we welcomed Laviai Neilson to our school.  She is an up and coming sprinter and was the fastest junior in the world last year over 400m.  Laviai was  inspired by being a kit carrier at the London 2012 Olympics.

'I stood behind Jessica Ennis and when she came out the crowd cheering was the loudest thing I've heard in my life,' says Laviai. 'I thought, "I want that". I was worried about getting muscular from athletics when I was younger but Jess showed me that you can be beautiful and inspirational.'


Laviai met with KS1 and KS2 in special assemblies before spending the rest of the day working with Mr Holyer.
