On behalf of all children, staff and governors at our school I would like to warmly welcome you to our website. We are proud to share our school with you and hope you enjoy your journey around it.
Lister Infant School is a community maintained school situated in the Tuebrook area of Liverpool. We are an inclusive school and are committed to ensuring that every child receives an education that allows them to achieve their full potential.
The school is led by a highly motivated and dedicated team who have worked hard to create a stimulating learning environment for our children. We have developed an exciting and challenging curriculum that is presented in an interesting and imaginative manner. It offers many opportunities for first-hand experience, practical work, investigation and learning through play and is enlivened and enriched by visits, visitors, and extensive use of the environment.
We have high expectations for all at Lister Infant School and encourage everyone to set high standards for themselves and others. We are very proud that our children achieve excellent results and know that this is based on a strong working partnership between school, children, parents/carers and the wider community.
We believe our school is a welcoming, friendly, lively and happy place where children feel secure and high standards of behaviour are expected.
We hope you will find our website useful. It will give you a flavour of all that Lister Infant School has to offer.
If you should have any further questions please do not hesitate in contacting me.
