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.

It’s all normal

As part of Anit-Bullying month we have been raising disability awareness here at Lakeside Primary School.  We were lucky enough to have a day of workshops lead by John McCorkell who inspired the children and really made us all think about what we can achieve if believe in ourselves.  The aptly named workshop, It’s All Normal, made the children realise that though everyone is different, everyone is also normal.  Children got the chance to experience what it would be like to have a disability and how they could manage this to still be able to achieve.

Children in Need 2014. Be a hero!


Friday 14th November is Children in Need day. Pupils and staff are invited to dress up as a superhero and make a donation of £1. We will add this to the money raised at the Harvest Festival and send it to the appeal. Choose your favourite superhero or invent your own and be a hero for the day!

What was life like for children in Victorian times?

Next half term we will be looking at how life was for children during Victorian times. We will be finding out about how home, school, play and work (yes, work!) were different to how they are today. To help bring the past to life, we will be visiting Cusworth Hall Museum on 18th November where we will experience a Victorian washday, school room, kitchen and toys and games.If you have any books or artefacts that might be of interest to us, please see Mrs McCrae or Miss Groves.

Have a great half term holiday.

Thank you


A big thank you to everyone who supported ‘Jeans for Genes’ day last Friday. We raised a total of £241 to help children born with genetic disorders.

Stig & Barney’s Next Adventures

After planning a new chapter for Stig of the Dump by Clive King, Class 5 had a go at using the iPads to create an animation before writing it.

I’m not sure all of the children stuck to their original story plan and we struggled to pick out the parts of ‘story mountain’ in most of them but everyone tried really hard to put expression into their acting and had a lovely time. We hope they make you laugh as much as we did!







Jeans for Genes


On Friday 19th September, Lakeside will once again be supporting the ‘Jeans for Genes’ charity to raise money for children suffering from genetic disorders. Pupils and staff may wear their jeans for school for a donation of at least £1. We hope that you will help us to support this event. Thank you.
