Welcome to Lakeside Primary School

Welcome to our school now in the ninth year in this fabulous building. If you are new to Lakeside or an old friend returning, we are confident that your child, or indeed your children, will be very happy and well cared for whilst with us. We are proud to be a caring and hard working school community where we all work together to ensure that all our children have successful learning experiences here and gain far more than just academic skills within our inclusive environment. We are currently focussing hard on improving our Literacy and Numeracy levels across the school. Lakeside belongs to us all but can only really be successful and effective if learners, staff, governors, families and the wider community work together in partnership to make it the happy, caring and safe learning environment we all strive to create. In short, whatever age of learner we are, we are learning together. “Onwards and Upwards, Reaching for the Stars!”
