Welcome to the Lakeside Primary School website. Ours is a happy, caring school where individuals are valued, respected and encouraged to aim high and enjoy their learning.
Our children learn that “Attitude = Altitude” as they develop into confident and successful individuals.
Our website allows us to share snap shots of the memorable, exciting and enjoyable curriculum that helps children develop their interests and talents to become lifelong learners with the skills, abilities and confidence to lead fulfilling lives.
We hope you enjoy exploring this site to find out more about the pupils, staff and the school.

The ‘Great Lakeside Book Exchange’ was a great success today with most children bringing in a ‘pre-loved’ book and going home with something new to read and share with their families. In reading workshops, we shared favourite stories with children from other classes. Lots of pupils are also taking part in the ‘Design a bookmark’ competition. Entries to Mrs McCrae for posting no later than Friday 14th March please.

Just a quick note to say thank you to all for the wonderful memories, gifts, cards and best wishes I received. I have thoroughly enjoyed teaching all children in my time at Lakeside Primary and I wish everyone the success they deserve.

Our assembly this morning was all about S.P.L.A.A.T! Safe PLay At All Times. Joanne Tilbrook from DMBC came to talk to us about keeping safe around building sites.
This is especially important to us at the moment as very soon there will be two building projects starting on our school site. First of all, our kitchen is being refurbished then we are having a brand new classroom built for the Foundation Stage. A letter to parents will be sent out shortly when details are finalised.
Watch this space!

Last week Y3/4 used all kinds of skills to find out about the lives of Native Americans.
We split up and read an information page about the thing that our group was about to make so we could tell everyone about it in the afternoon. Each group made something different. There were headdresses, Kachina dolls, Navajo sand pictures, dance sticks, buffalo hide pictures, tepees and a huge totem pole! Y3/4 was a hive of activity with measuring, gluing, cutting, painting, lots of clearing up and even some very wiggly rain dances!
Everyone learned a lot and had a great time. Here are some of the photos…

Lakeside was pleased to welcome the children’s author E.R.Reilly into school today. He kept us all entertained with extracts from his stories and gave us lots of ideas for our own writing. Check out his website at www.er-reilly.co.uk.
Following this visit we will be holding a writing competition with children creating their own stories around Eammon’s writing challenges. There will be signed copies of some of his books as prizes for the most original and gripping stories.
