We use the web-based app platform Seesaw to create regular digital portfolios of our Primary students’ learning. We share these with parents, who can leave journal entries of constructive feedback about their child’s learning and development. The announcement feature enables teachers to share reminders of class events and the year group’s weekly newsletter, which summarises what the children have learned and what’s on the agenda for next week.

Our Secondary students use ManageBac to support their curriculum mapping: assignment setting, homework, and assessments, and tracking and reporting their progress. This unified system ensures a consistent platform, as well as a seamless and integrated experience for teachers, students, and parents to manage every aspect of the curriculum.


At LCIS, we believe that extra-curricular activities (ECAs) play a crucial role in providing a well-rounded education for our students. Our exciting and diverse ECA programme for students in Year 1 to DP2 is designed to complement the core curriculum and offers a fun and challenging experience for your child. Furthermore, we offer after-school care from 15:05 to 18:15 for students from Foundation 1 to Year 6. Sign up through SchoolsBuddy to take advantage of these opportunities.
