Cliftonville Primary School

As an outstanding primary and Pre-school we aim to inspire children to achieve more than they ever believed possible. Our deeply rooted school values (Independence, Safe and Settled, Resilience, Respect, Aspiration, Enjoying Learning and Community Unity) provide the foundations for each child to be the best they can be and thrive in a changing world.
As a very large school, catering for an increasingly diverse community, it is our responsibility to enable each and every individual to achieve their best, both academically and personally. This diversity brings a richness to our school which we celebrate and capitalise on.

Wellbeing is at the core of what we do every day and this is reflected in our school values as the centre to all we do at Cliftonville Primary and Pre-school. We commit to making it our mission to promote positive wellbeing for all our pupils, staff and the wider community including parents and carers. Therefore, we aim to educate and support our whole school community on the importance of wellbeing and mental health, ensuring it is everyone’s responsibility to care for one another.
