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!


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.  Mrs Harper, with help from some fabulous parent helpers, 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. 



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.


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.
