Information for parents & carers

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!
