Welcome to Lakeside Primary School
We have received notification from the Local Authority this morning that Simon has resigned his post at Lakeside with immediate effect. Simon asked for the following message to be passed on : “Sadly I am too unwell to return to my position and that I would like to thank all the learners, parents, carers and staff who have been supportive of me during my time as Head and that it has been an honour to serve the Community of Wilmorton Community Primary School, Southgate Infant and Nursery School and latterly Lakeside Community Primary School”. The School Governors have been in contact with the Local Authority regarding the resignation and will be setting up a meeting with the Head of the School Improvement Team to discuss the way forward for the school. In the short term we will be continuing with the same leadership arrangements at the school : Miss Baker and Mrs Knibbs Acting Headteachers, so there will be a period of consistency for the rest of the academic year. We will update you once we have had our meeting with the Local Authority so that you are kept informed of the discussions.
Welcome to our school now in the eleventh 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 hardworking 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, and ensure all learners develop sound moral values based on British Values as shown by the posters around school.
Lakeside belongs to us all but can only really be happy, 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!”
Return to LCPS – Tues 21st Feb
Children’s Mental Health Week 6th-12th Feb 2017
The school based mental health charity Place2Be is this year, encouraging everyone to ‘spread a little kindness’. We have all known someone who has gone through a tough time for one reason or another. It may sound simple but we all know that small acts of kindness can make a positive difference. Please can Parent/Carers help your child to understand the value of kindness.
A Big ‘Thank you’
This goes to all of you who have volunteered so far this school year to help the learners in school and at lunchtimes. Your time is much appreciated and we are very grateful. Many of you have offered to help out on a regular basis by assisting in class/hearing readers. If you are interested in doing this, please speak to the school office about
