About Clifton Primary School

Clifton Primary School is a very special place where each and every child is valued for who they are and an important part of our school family. Clifton’s children are our future and as such must be nurtured, cared for and educated to the highest standards through exceptional care for their wellbeing, an ambitious curriculum and dedicated staff. We aim for excellence in all that we do and our high standards of behaviour ensures every child is given the best possible opportunity to learn in a happy, safe and calm environment.

Clifton Primary School is not just about subjects, although, of course these are a very important part of school: it’s about life experiences and enjoyment; it’s about friendship and personal challenges; it’s about learning about yourself and achieving more than you thought possible; it’s about relationships and commitment and it’s about fun and laughter. Throughout their time at Clifton, children are offered a wealth of opportunities and experiences as we prepare them well for their future education and give them an insight into the world around them.

Apprenticeships are open to everyone of all ages, so perhaps you have just left school and would like to get straight into work? Maybe you are a working parent looking for a change? Or perhaps you are looking for a career break and want to retrain and start something totally new! All applications are welcome.
