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.

Class 7a visit Hall Cross

P1000168On the 4th March Year 4 went for a transition day at Hall Cross. We worked with Miss Nield to explore the type of work that the children do at Bace. We discovered that Hall Cross really tries to promote team work, creative thinking and independant learning. Just like we do at Lakeside! We met some important people at the school such as Mr Oliwer and Mrs Briggs and found out how they help you in year 7 and onwards.We also enjoyed a tour of the school and had lots of fun seeing children that had previously been at Lakeside. They had really grown up!! The children had to come up with their own Super Hero and describe the different qualities they would have.We also had the opportunity to watch some year 8 lessons taking place. It was a great day and many of the children were ready to go and join Hall Cross there and then! As always, class 7a were polite and well mannered. Well done to you!P1000160

Here we are working as a team.


Taking a tour of the school – it was rather windy!P1000168

Meeting Mrs Briggs in her office – attendance is very important. Just as it is at Lakeside!



Basic Skills Quality Mark


Well done Lakeside on being accredited with the Basic Skills Quality Mark for the third time!

The award
The Basic Skills Quality Mark is an award that celebrates and supports continuous improvement in literacy and numeracy.

It is awarded to a setting or school to recognise their provision, practice and performance in literacy and numeracy, and is valid for three years.

A school or setting must demonstrate a whole school approach to improving standards in literacy and numeracy, with evidence of the impact of its approaches.

It provides a framework for self-evaluation and continuous improvement of the basic skills of all pupils in a school, including those who underachieve and those who underattain.

For further information, go to the BSQM website at http://www.qm-alliance.co.uk

Coming soon…World Book Day

Children are invited to come to school in pyjamas and bring their favourite book, a torch and a blanket for ‘books under the blanket’. Classes have special activities planned including building ‘blanket fortresses’ and reading with children in other year groups. Pupils will also receive their £1 World Book Day voucher which can be exchanged in bookshops for any of the WBD special £1 books or towards full price books. Keep reading!
