Hello and welcome to The Governing Body Blog.

Summer Term 2019

Hi all , we were invited into school assembly last Friday for “ The Lisburne School Garden  Competition .”  Each class had created a themed garden that was the result of  all the children working very  hard during maths week. They used all types of maths , weighing , measuring  and counting to creatively design their  gardens through lots of  practical activities and trips to the garden centre . Joan our chair , had the very difficult job of helping to choose a winner ! It was lovely to see the whole school together in the hall and see a pupil from each class be awarded a star mathematician of the week certificate , and the children so delighted and applauding of their  class friends achievement. Great team spirit

Summer Term 2018

Hi all, it’s the summer term already. We have attended the school summer fair which was a great success and very busy in the beautiful weather. The Signing Choir gave a lovely outdoor performance at the fair.

We all came in for a Governor Day on “Well Being” where we took a look at what Lisburne does to promote personal well being – we had a yoga sessions with Sena, who showed us all the work she had been doing with the children. We also saw class circle times where children and staff are encouraged to have a voice and share their thoughts and feelings.

We are looking forward to attending the school show which is always a treat and celebrating the year sixes time at School at the Leavers Disco later in July.

All the governors are involved in school life and take pride in being governors.

Spring Term 2018

Another busy term for the governors, we were invited into school for the ribbon cutting of the brand new second school mini bus . The children will be able to get out and about for lots of new experiences and develop life skills . A big Thank you to everyone who contributed to the fundraising effort to make this possible.
We came to spend a full day in school to look at how the pupil premium fund is used , this year the focus is on communication and we had a very informative day, seeing how speech and language therapists use different forms of communication methods within school and how the children are learning to communicate with each other through music and dance .
The governors attended the annual governors conference. The focus was on “well being“ for schools, for staff, pupils and parents and carers .
We are looking forward to attending the Easter celebrations on the last day of term . Happy Easter holidays from the governing board.

Autumn term 2017

We have been very busy this term, with our meetings and spending lots of time in school. In mid September we attended the ‘Awareness day’ where we learned a lot about the different conditions within school, from the parents point of view.  The parents  ran the stalls, giving in depth knowledge about how the conditions affect their children. We came in for the harvest assemblies and we visited  different classes. I visited Silver Birch class and we made ‘Mr Potato heads’ out of vegetables and sang the ‘Harvest Samba song’.  Most recently we attended the anti bullying week, ‘WoW morning’. Where the theme was ‘All different, all equal’ the children were looking at different disabilities and how it might feel . The children painted using their mouths, with hands behind their backs and touched things they couldn’t see in touchy, feely boxes. We are very much looking forward to seeing Lisburne Christmas shows, always a highlight of the year show casing all the children and staffs hard work.
