Cliftonville Primary School
We are one of the largest primary schools in Kent with 730 children on roll, including a 52-place pre-school. Our recent Ofsted inspection, November 2016, found every aspect of the school to be OUTSTANDING. This represents a remarkable turnaround for the school which is attributable to the dedication and professionalism of ALL staff. A new teaching block opened in November 2015 with eight new classrooms, a second hall and staff facilities. Our school is warm and welcoming to children, their families and staff. We are committed to maintaining our outstanding school in an environment that promotes intellectual, physical, emotional, social and spiritual development. As with any school, there are challenges...but the rewards of working at Cliftonville are huge. The school became an academy in December 2013, a partner in a small local Multi Academy Trust called the Coastal Academies Trust. Results for Year 6 2016 were above national for 'expected' reading, writing and maths (combined) and in line with national for the percentage of pupils working at the higher level for all three aspects combined. Mathematics and reading are particularly strong. This represents outstanding progress from starting points which are well below national in reception. The school holds a number of important accreditations including the Inclusion Quality Mark and the Continuous Professional Learning & Development Quality Mark.
