Lister Primary School was delighted to host BBC Journalist Gaggan Sabherwal, who visited us recently to produce a BBC World Services Documentary on the safe re-opening of school.  This has subsequently been broadcast all across Asia, being translated on BBC Hindi, BBC Gujarati and BBC Telugu News. It will also be broadcast across Pakistan later this week.

Welcome to Lister Primary School. We are proud to be part of Carlton Academy Trust which comprises of schools from both primary and secondary phases. We endeavour to ensure the Trust’s mission statement of ‘Excellence for all’ through our wonderful curriculum and rich learning experiences.

Lister Primary strives to create an atmosphere where all children and adults feel safe, valued and included. The kind of place where every child can arrive with a smile on their face, where there is a keen sense of belonging and a pride in their school. We believe that all children have a voice to be heard and that their care and education must lie at the heart of everything we do.

We believe in life-long learning and that adults can learn from children and children can learn from adults. Sharing experiences and together discovering the excitement and enjoyment of acquiring new knowledge and understanding is part of our ethos. Achievements are there to be celebrated, ideas to be shared and respect for others is evident in all we do.

Lister Primary School wants everyone to have the experience of tasting success and to feel good about themselves as a member of both the school and wider community.

Our school is a place where children start on the road to achieve their dreams and where adults can smile and say that our children are doing well. Every member of our staff cares deeply about the children, families and community they work with and have the children’s mental health and well-being as a priority.

We hope you enjoy viewing our website.
