Cliftonville Primary and Pre-School is an excellent school the children are happy and thriving. Brilliant school, fabulous staff, great senior leadership team = a happy child! The dedication and hard work from the entire school team is outstanding and clear to see. I think you've all been amazing throughout the years, just want to so say thankyou & we appreciate everything you do for all of us . We love the school and are so impressed with all of the staff who work so hard constantly it is greatly appreciated by the children and parents and carers thank you. Presence of Teachers and caretakers at pick up and drop off really help you feel safe. The well-being of the pupils is outstanding. 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 o


We hope all children feel that wearing their Cliftonville uniform is a badge of pride, creating an identity for our school and bringing together our whole community.  We are very grateful to the support from our parents and carers who ensure that children have the correct uniform on every day.  Our Parent Support Workers, in the Hub House, keeps a stock of good quality second-hand items which helps to keep costs down for our families.  Children must not wear trainers to school; all children must have black school shoes. On PE days, children must wear their school PE kit ( not football kits etc).


We have invested in lockers for all the children, so that they can be supported in looking after their belongings.


Hair cuts should be age appropriate and suitable to the school environment – hair should not be dyed, unless temporarily for non school uniform days, and short hair should not have patterns or words shaved into it. 

This wording was suggested by our Parents' Forum and agreed by the Senior Leadership Team.


Just to clarify, PE kit for all children is as follows:

  • black shorts or joggers
  • white t-shirt
  • school jumper 
  • school shoes or trainers (we are not insisting on black trainers)
  • no earrings or taped earrings


Our school uniform




  1. Name EVERY item to include shoes, coats, backpacks, lunchboxes
  2. Use a permanent marker or special laundry pen.  Biro washes out.
  3. Use your child’s full name ie Peter Smith.  In a school of our size there will be lots of children with the initials P.S or Peter S


Children move around the building to go to sets, the library, assembly and out on the field/playground.  Unless items are labelled correctly we have very little chance of re-uniting them with your child.  It is also, understandably, frustrating for parents who are trying to find labelled uniform amongst a huge box of unnamed items.  Every child has a named locker and between staff and parents we need to teach them to take responsibility for their belongings.  If, by mistake, you end up with someone else’s named uniform at home, please return it the next day.





Second hand uniform

If you are in need of any second hand uniform please email our parent support advisors on and say what you would like. They will get back to you about availability and when you can pick up. Items are 50p each, if you could put correct money in an envelope as we do not handle any money due to Covid restrictions.
