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!

Year 1 phonics screening results


I am pleased to report that our children have done incredibly well in the phonics assessment in Year 1 with 80% of children meeting the expected standard.  This is above the national data for 2015 and represents outstanding progress from their starting points in Year R.  It is a measure of the great teaching in Early Years, the work we have done to improve transition into Year 1 and the fantastic teaching they have had under Mr Sharpe's leadership.  Thank you to our parents who have supported by attending workshops, playing phonics games sent home and coming to the information sessions.  Individual pupil data will be reported at the end of term.
