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!

Special events

Harvest 2020 celebration


This year we will be celebrating Harvest in school with a virtual whole school assembly on Friday 16th October. In these times of bubbles and separate playtimes for different year groups, we are really looking forward to all coming together (virtually) to consider the importance of community and helping each other. 

As in previous years, we will be collecting donations for Thanet Food Link. They are always blown away by the generosity of the Cliftonville community and were delighted to hear that we are going to collect for them again this year - the need is greater than ever. If you are able to donate, please send contributions in on Thursday 15th October or Friday 16th October. Please send all contributions in a carrier bag so that we can minimise the amount of handling that needs to be done.


Please see below for the link to the list of foods most needed.


Many, many thanks in advance for your generosity.
