Clifton with Rawcliffe Primary School is a special place. It is housed in a state of the art new building that was consciously designed to enable 21st Century education to be delivered. More importantly the pupils and the staff combine to imbue the school with a sense of happiness, purpose and enthusiasm. It is a calm, controlled environment, where individual need and basic skills are a joint focus. The open plan aspect of the design allows teaching staff to control the learning environment in order to benefit the style of teaching and learning taking place.
