We have close ties with our community. Lunches and dinners are prepared locally in the community centre. The children enjoy river walks and playing in the local playground.

At Lyreacrompane N.S. we have the staffing and resources to give children the individual attention and time required to fulfil their potential. We try to expose the children to a wide range of activities so that each child can find something that interests them. Some of the activities the children have taken part in include chess, music, French, gardening, mindfulness, debating, junior entrepreneur
programme, robotics and programming, scratch, swimming and many more.

The school provides access to an online individualised reading and maths programme for each child and also monthly Primary Planet Magazines.
