Introduction

Our School from above, (c) Google Maps

Clifton Primary is a growing school. We have 118 children currently in Nursery (60 attend in the mornings and 58 in the afternoon), we are four form entry throughout the school. Currently we have 924 children on roll including Nursery.

In the last four years we have had our Rainforest building built which includes 12 classrooms and have refurbished our old infant block to become a new Early Years Foundation Stage building. This includes a brand new sports hall and main entrance to the school, which is now on Brunswick Road. We opened our brand new Universe building in February 2016 for our Year 6 children.

Children attending Clifton Primary school live in the local catchment area which is part of the Sparkbrook Ward, Birmingham.

33% of our pupils are entitled to Free School Meals and 15% of pupils are on the SEN register (including Nursery).

Clifton Primary is an outstanding school. We have worked hard to gain many awards including: the Basic Skills Quality Mark; Artsmark Gold; Primary Science Quality Mark; Full International Primary Award; Active Primary; Healthy Schools Award and Financial Standards Management. Most recently we have received the UNICEF UK Recognition of Commitment (ROC) for our Rights Respecting School work.

We are part of the Greet Teaching School Alliance and are linked to many colleges as a training school. We have links with schools locally, nationally and internationally in Gambia, Australia, Rwanda, Sudan, Singapore and South Africa. Working with parents is a particular strength; we run (sometimes in association with local colleges) a range of programmes which include literacy, numeracy, ESOL, first aid and ICT skills.
