It is a lovely school with a welcoming feel and a positive atmosphere. Much more visible leadership team. A feeling of pride in the school. 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! The trips that Mrs Glover & Mrs Sear have been putting together are a fantastic idea and hope they continue. 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. Senior & middle leaders know the strengths of their staff & deploy them accordingly. More tailored support for different groups of learners has been a really big & positive change. Thank you! The Headteacher has a clear vision for the school & her ambition for it to continue to make improvements is shared by her senior team & staff.


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.

  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.
