Joining the Cliffedale EYFS family

Dear Parents and Carers,


We are delighted that you have accepted a place for your child in our Foundation Stage classes and are pleased to welcome you as new members of the Cliffedale Family.

You are joining our school at an important stage of our journey as we have just had a successful OFSTED inspection with ‘Good’ judgements in all areas except for ‘Personal Development, Behaviour and Welfare’ in which we have been judged as ‘Outstanding.’ It is a source of great pride that our work in this area has been recognised and valued so highly and we are delighted to be a ‘Good’ school. We are looking forward to working with you to ensure your child has the best start to life at Cliffedale Primary school.
