We want to wish you all a very warm (if virtual) welcome to Lakeside Primary School. Choosing the right school for your child is a really important decision. Usually at this time of year we welcome prospective families the opportunity to visit our school during a typical school day so you can see first hand what we at Lakeside Primary can offer your child as they embark on their school learning journey. This year we need to do things differently to ensure that we keep everyone safe. We have some different options for you so that you can still discover our school.
As we are unable to offer visits into school this year we have filmed a brand new school tour.
Also, rest assured that we have a robust transition in place so children will have plenty of opportunities to get to know our school before they start school.
You can also explore the Reception class page on our school website where you will find further information about our approach, curriculum, photos and videos of the Reception classrooms, the induction program that was in place for this year, and our Starting School information video for Reception starters for the September 2020 cohort of children.
To apply for a place in Reception in September 2021 you should apply from 1st November 2020 and before 15th January 2021.
Meanwhile, stay safe and we hope to see or hear from you soon.
In addition, please do follow us on social media for regular photos and information updates on Twitter and Facebook.
You can contact the Early Years team directly by emailing: NewReception@lakeside.gloucs.sch.uk
Here is a look at our Reception classrooms. Throughout the summer we will be preparing them for our Rising Receptions to arrive. When we are finished we will be uploading virtual tours of all three of our classrooms so you can have a sneaky peak.
This is a fantastic BBC website offering support and top tips for parents during the transition period before starting school. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/collections/starting-primary-school/1
