Welcome to Lakeside Primary School

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.

We achieved our Investors in Pupils award in July 2014. Thank you to everyone for their hard work and commitment.

Over the academic year the staff and children at Lakeside Primary School will be continuing to work hard on our journey continuing to be and ‘Investors in Pupils School’. Investors in Pupils is a central part to our practise at Lakeside Primary School; it helps children to develop behaviour for learning and to understand the importance aspects of school but also provide some ownership to the children of things which happen in school.

What is it?

Investors in Pupils is a charter mark which nationally recognises the effort and contributions made by school. It empowers children, increases motivation and helps increase attainment and progress.

Congratulations House Captains!



Congratulations to Eleanor, Chandni, Medi and Evelina who have, this week, been voted House Captains by their house members in KS2. Their election followed nominations, speeches and a secret ballot. Thank you also to the other candidates who bravely put themselves forward – better luck next time.

Next week we will be holding our elections for the Vice Captain positions. Make sure you have your campaign speeches prepared for Monday’s assembly if you wish to take part. Good luck!
