What we do at Lisburne School: Intensive Interaction

At Lisburne we feel it is important to share our knowledge with parents and carers and those wishing to understand more about the way we educate and communicate with the children of Lisburne School. We will be releasing a series of videos looking specifically at the teaching tools we use to develop, enhance and enrich our pupils’ education. Please find below our most recent video in this series: “Intensive Interaction”. If you wish to find out more please contact your class teacher or your Family Liaison. Many thanks.

Spring Update – February 2021

We are pleased to see everyone return back safely to school after our February half term break. The weather can be very changeable at this time of year and it can still be a cold. Could we please remind everyone to make sure that the children come into school with clearly named/ labelled coats, hats, gloves, etc. that are suitable for the weather conditions.

We would like to introduce Bear, our new therapy dog.

Each week Bear will visit classes to support children’s wellbeing and support learning linked to our extended curriculum. He will be working with Richard at Forest School and in our outdoor learning environment. You will see when he has been in your child’s class through Dojo/Tapestry and Richard will also complete and post a weekly “Bear update”.

Please be aware that unfortunately due to current restrictions Bear will only be visiting classes at the main site – he will be able to visit Holly and Overdale soon but we are currently limiting the number of visitors moving between our 3 sites.

Happy New Year and I hope you have had a good Christmas break.
As you are aware the whole country is in a rapidly evolving situation. We are in a national

Your class teacher will have already spoken to you about your child’s return to school. We appreciate that you are all in different circumstances and it is a personal decision that you have each taken as to whether your child will return to school on Thursday or not…
