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!


Zones of Regulation- can help if children feel worried or anxious


In school we have been working with the children on a new way of understanding and expressing their emotions called the Zones of Regulation.


Children are encouraged to put their name card on the emotion they are feeling in the morning when they come into school and after break times.


Each Zone has a 'toolkit' to give the children suggestions of what to do to improve their feelings.


It is important to note that we do not say one emotion is better than another, just that we acknowledge what we are feeling and what we can do about that. Teachers and TA's would approach children at a quiet time to discuss how they are feeling and give support if required.


At this difficult time some children may be feeling anxious and worried. If you would like to make your own version of the Zones to use with your children at home you can find them here on our website:‚Äč
