Welcome to Clifton with Rawcliffe Primary School

It is a great privilege to lead this wonderful school and I hope that you find the website useful.

Clifton with Rawcliffe Primary School is a special place. With a newly designed building created from a vision for teaching and learning that prepares children for the demands of life in the twenty first century, the children thrive and develop knowledge and skills that they need for the rest of their learning and working lives.

This is a happy school, where staff and children learn together in a calm and creative environment that focuses on the development of the basic skills. Children learn to work with confidence and independence in open plan learning areas that offer creative and flexible approaches to teaching across the whole curriculum. The school offers a full range of outdoor and indoor learning facilities in state of the art buildings and grounds. Our forest school, garden area, outdoor Maths and Science classrooms and all-weather sports MUGA provides fantastic outdoor learning opportunities for all ages.

A fantastic library and resource centre lies at the heart of the school. The dance studio, art room and extensive IT facilities provide opportunities for children not usually found in a primary school. The creative and cross-curricular approaches to planning makes sure every day all children are active learners. We believe this is the way they learn best.

Children at Clifton with Rawcliffe become articulate and independent young people who make a positive contribution to the local community and move on to continue this at secondary school. We value the partnership with families and the local community and will ensure every child is safe, happy and enjoys their learning at Clifton with Rawcliffe.

We look forward to meeting you and would encourage you to come and visit us to find out more about what makes this school so special.
