Here at Lisburne, we cater for children with a range of complex learning needs. These include moderate, severe or profound learning difficulties and autistic spectrum disorders. Each child has their own EHC plan.
The Early Years department has 26 children for the academic year 2018-19 There are 18 reception age children and 8 Year 1 children.
Reception and Year 1 children are taught together in mixed age groups for all activities. This mixed age grouping is a positive aspect of our provision, helping Reception children to learn from good modelling by Year 1 children. Year 1 children also gain confidence and mature socially and emotionally during this second year in the Early Years. At the end of Year 1 they are ready to transition to the next stage of their education.
