Cliffdale Primary School

Solent Academies Trust

Empowering Excellence & Equity for Everyone

A very warm welcome to Cliffdale Primary Academy Website

We are a primary special school for 196 pupils aged 2-11 years who have complex learning difficulties; over 70% of our pupils have autism and severe learning difficulties. 

At Cliffdale our vision is:  

Together we persevere and innovate so every child is confident, enjoys learning and develops skills.

We are unrelentingly positive and care about everyone’s wellbeing.

We provide amazing opportunities and support families to improve our children’s lives and enable them to flourish.

We understand that every child who attends Cliffdale is unique and we design a curriculum that is right for them, enabling them to develop skills for the next stage in their lives. We are committed to providing fantastic experiences for our children, to broaden their world and encourage new interests.

Our Values: Inspire Engagement, Build Relationships, Increase Communication, Promote Independence and Encourage Resilience are at the heart of everything we do. They are the things we believe are most important to teach our children. The Cliffdale Star represents our school, and our colourful triangle characters represent each school value. When we work together and practise all the values, we achieve exceptional things.

Together we Shine

We hope you enjoy our website and we look forward to welcoming you to our school.
