Headteacher's Welcome



The pupils, parents, staff and governors would like to welcome you to Clarice Cliff Primary School’s website.  We hope that you will find the site useful, with lots of relevant information about our school and our aims and ambitions for your child’s education.

We are a recently built school in the Priory Fields area of Fenton, Stoke-on-Trent, which prides itself in creating a warm, happy, caring atmosphere where everyone is encouraged to achieve their full potential and develop a love of learning.

We aim to work in partnership with you to provide a rich and stimulating learning experience with your child at the very centre.

Our Early Years Foundation Department ensures that our children are given the best possible start to their education. Our governors are keen to involve children at the earliest opportunity and offer free full time places within our nursery class.

“The early years provision is a strength of the school. Learning is creative and highly engaging. Children behave well, feel safe and enjoy school.”  (Ofsted, 2016)

Recent playground improvements throughout the school help to ensure that children have productive and happy playtimes and are able to access outdoor areas for a variety of learning experiences. The Early Years outdoor area is particularly amazing with its beautiful artificial grass mounds and play tunnels, pirate ship, performance stage, race track and allotment areas.

Whilst we aim for academic excellence, we also value excellence and achievement in a very wide range of experiences, including sport and the arts. We believe that success in areas such as sport and music play a large part in shaping pupils’ attitudes and personal spirit.

We are incredibly proud of our pupils and their positive attitudes and high standards of behaviour. Our most recent Ofsted Inspection found that, 

“Pupils at Clarice Cliff Primary show tremendous confidence. Pupils are very inquisitive and the inspection team were inundated with questions and requests to share learning during the inspection.”

At Clarice Cliff, we value the role that each and every child plays in their community.  We aim to nurture our pupils to help them to become happy, confident, considerate and respectful young people.

The good behaviour of our children and their lovely manners are often praised by both staff and visitors to the school.

You are welcome to arrange a visit to experience our lively, hardworking and caring school for yourself.  We would be delighted to give you a guided tour of our beautiful school and wonderful outdoor learning environments.
