Vision and Values
Lakeside Primary School is a place in which everyone is valued. Children are given the opportunity to discover their potential and to develop the skills to achieve more than they thought possible. Our ethos encourages resilience, independence, confidence and creativity, and we celebrate effort as well as achievement. Here we foster a love of learning that children will carry with them throughout their lives.
The iCan values underpin all that we believe in at Lakeside: inspiring, caring, aiming high, never giving up. We maintain that children learn best when they experience high quality teaching (inspiring), when they feel safe and looked after (caring), when they have challenge (aiming high) and when they are encouraged to be resilient (never giving up).
We aim to:
- Provide a stimulating ‘Theme Led’ Curriculum that excites learners and develops thinkers
- Follow a set of moral and British values to ensure that children respect themselves and others
- Have high standards which ensure excellent teaching to create independent and resilient learners
- Recognise the needs of each individual, celebrating differences and promoting tolerance
