Clifton Primary School has a very active PTA and welcomes new members to the committee or extra volunteers to help at events. The PTA also support the school in providing voluntary help with a huge range of tasks including providing refreshments at events, making costumes and scenery for performances and with the construction of our new garden area. The money raised by the PTA is of invaluable benefit to the children at our school. They fund transport and admission costs for school trips and travel to sports events and recently funded the equipment for the newly built outdoor shelter. If you […]
It’s that time of year again! Parents, grandparents and staff gathered together for our annual creative evening making Christmas wreaths to adorn our own front doors. It was once again a very enjoyable and productive event…. an evening of calm amongst the Christmas chaos.
A group of 19 intrepid walkers set off bright and early from Patterdale on June 23 for the 22 mile walk around Ullswater. After a reviving cake and cuppa break at Granny Dowbekins half way through they were joined by reinforcements for a 4 mile stretch to Howtown. All money raised will go towards i.pads for school. Well done and thank you to all those who took part or sponsored walkers. Another enjoyable and successful event for Clifton School.
A sunny Friday evening in June saw the first of a new event for Clifton Primary School with a night of rounders, stalls, Bouncy Castle, BBQ and bar. Organised by a the PTA it raised over £400 for school funds and everyone agreed it was a great chance to socialise and have fun. Maybe a get together to organise every year!
Another £130 was added to our i.pad fund after the first ever Beetle Drive in May. It was a popular evening for families and one that the PTA will definitely do again.
Despite a gloomy start the weather once again behaved itself for our annual summer fair. This year the PTA excelled themselves with bunting, handcrafted wooden signs and paper pompoms adding to the carnival atmosphere. As well as the usual stalls; tombola, cakes, sweets, raffle, children’s crafts, games and face painting there was a BBQ, live music and a visit from a fire engine! There was plenty to keep visitors busy with a bouncy castle, inflatable slide, Action Ants and Nerf Wars. A massive thanks to all who supported this event and in particular to the PTA members who worked so […]
As a break for the festive frenzy parents and staff gathered on 1st December to make their own festive wreaths. Everyone was delighted with their finished wreaths which are now gracing a number of front doors in Clifton and beyond. Keep an eye open for them and come join in the fun next year.

Our annual summer fair was once again blessed with lovely summer weather on Saturday 16th July. This year’s was bigger and better than ever with a Rio carnival theme. The Fair was opened by a samba style fancy dress parade lead by one of our musical parents.

Thanks to a record number of donated prizes the tombola remained a great attraction throughout […]
