Our Mission Statement

Cliftonville School is fully committed to raising standards in the basic skills of Literacy and Numeracy as well as developing children’s abilities in all curriculum subjects.

It aims to ensure that a happy and stimulating learning environment exists within the community in which children can be motivated, educated and secure.


The school is divided into four departments Early Years, Key Stage One, Lower Key Stage Two and Upper Key Stage Two with senior staff acting as a management team who are responsible for the day to day running of the school. There are currently two classes for in each of years 5 & 6 and three classes in each of years R, 1, 2, 3 & 4.

The school is organised into class groups at the beginning of the school year. Hopefully, the children will remain with the same teacher. Whenever change takes place, either through movement of staff or for the child's benefit, parents are notified.


Children are expected to behave in an orderly manner both in school and in the playground to have respect for adults and each other.

2. We are kind and helpful.

3. We listen.

4. We are honest.

5. We work hard.

The Governors, who are ultimately responsible for the delivery of the school curriculum, have adopted the Aims of School Education as presented by the Kent Curriculum Statement in accordance with the National Curriculum.

The Kent Education Authority requires all schools to adopt the following educational aims:

* To maintain and develop in pupils, lively enquiring minds; to promote the ability to question and argue rationally, and to encourage pupils to apply themselves to a range of tasks and skills.

* To emphasise the importance of language, number, the aesthetic and physical areas of learning and to develop competence in them.

* To foster attitudes which will instil selfconfidence in pupils, create in them a sense of personal excellence and help them to acquire knowledge and skills relevant to life and work in a fast changing world.

* To help pupils to develop perceptive, spiritual and moral values and an understanding of the religions and beliefs of others.

* To help pupils to understand the world in which they live and the interdependence of individuals, groups and nations.

* To develop in pupils the ability to appreciate critically human achievements and aspirations.

Each year group follows National Curriculum statutory programmes of study for English, Mathematics, Science, IT, Geography, History, Art, Music, Physical Education and Design Technology. Religious Education, Health Education and French are also part of the school curriculum.

The curriculum is divided into two Key Stages. Key Stage 1 is for children aged 5 to 7, and Key Stage 2 is for children aged 7 to 11.

The school operates a policy of equal access to all areas of the curriculum for children regardless of gender, race or disability.

Children may be grouped according to ability with in the class and, for some subjects, there may be setting across the year groups.

The school has its own curriculum guidelines which correlate with those of the National Curriculum. Integrated themes are incorporated within the Science, Geography and History programmes of study. For more details on the school curriculum and the Local Education Authority's policy, please contact the Head Teacher.
