“A very warm welcome to Clifton Primary School!”


My name is Mr Steve Kernan and I am incredibly proud to be the Executive Headteacher here at Clifton!

We are an outstanding, outward-facing school community with years of educational life and experience behind us, looking forward to the future in all that we do. We believe that education is about the whole child and our ultimate aim is that children leave Clifton ready for the next stage of their education and their lives.

We place as much importance on social and emotional development as we do academic success. We provide a broad, exciting, creative and balanced curriculum that makes learning fun and meaningful and which sets our children up for a successful future.

At Clifton, you will find a happy, secure and caring atmosphere where positive attitudes and achievements are celebrated and where children are supported in developing as confident, self-reliant, independent learners who are motivated to fulfill their potential and be the very best that they can be.

We are a learning community which prides itself on being ambitious, resilient and respectful – we value all learners as individuals and see our role as equipping the children in our care with the values and skills they will need in order to become proud citizens of 21st century Britain!

Mr Steve Kernan, Executive Headteacher

Our Lunchtime Food

School Dinners

We pride ourselves in supplying our children with excellent food. We feel that it is one of the most important parts of a child’s life – to eat properly. Eating a healthy diet enables a child to live life to the full and gives them a better performance all round, specifically helping with their concentration levels – which in turn affects achievement. Its good to know that our children are getting a well balanced and healthy meal.

Premium Spends
Spending Money

The school is granted premiums each year to spend on supporting children in their education. Here we have information on the Pupil Premium and Sport Premiun spends.

The pupil premium is additional funding for publicly funded schools in England to raise the attainment of disadvantaged pupils of all abilities and to close the gaps between them and their peers.

Schools receive PE and sport premium funding based on the number of pupils in years 1 to 6. Schools must use the funding to make additional and sustainable improvements to the quality of PE and sport they offer.

Development Overview

At Clifton Primary School we believe that children learn best when they:

• are happy and secure;
• are respected;
• feel confident to share their ideas and beliefs;
• are given opportunities to develop as individuals;
• share experiences with their peers;
• are valued as part of a diverse community.

The spiritual, moral, social and cultural (SMSC) development of the children at Clifton
is at the heart of our ethos.

We aim to provide a broad and balanced education where pupils achieve their potential in
any field and which helps them to explore and develop their own:
• personal behaviour;
• spiritual awareness;
• ideals, values and beliefs;
• positive, tolerant and caring attitude towards others;
• an appreciation of the diversity and richness of their own and other cultures.
