Welcome to Lisburne School
We are a primary school of 185 pupils with a range of complex learning needs. Our aim is to provide quality inclusive education for all pupils and access to the full range of National Curriculum subjects in a safe, caring environment where all achievement is valued and celebrated. Individual differences are acknowledged and pupils have access to stimulating, challenging and varied experiences, which promote communication, self-esteem, responsibility and independence.
We have a caring team of staff who are highly trained and experienced in dealing with a wide range of learning difficulties. We offer our children small class sizes, high levels of adult support and an environment where trained staff can offer a range of appropriate strategies and interventions to meet the complex needs of the pupils.
Ofsted inspected the school in June 2023 and we are proud to have retained our Outstanding rating for the fourth time.
'Pupils are exceptionally happy at Lisburne school, where they flourish. They develop deep and meaningful bonds with each other and staff. They can talk to any member of staff if they are worried or concerned. This contributes to them feeling very safe.'
'Leaders expect pupils’ behaviour to be exceptional. Pupils respond well to leaders’ and staff’s exceedingly high expectations. They are positive role models and proud school ambassadors. Leaders and staff set no limits to pupils’ achievement. Pupils progress exceptionally well in many areas of the curriculum.'
'Throughout the curriculum, staff focus on helping pupils to understand safe and unsafe situations.'
There were several positive comments regarding the school’s work including, ‘A wonderful caring staff and environment’, ‘My child has already made so much progress in all areas of her education’, ‘This is a jewel of a school.’
