We are proud to have been awarded the IQM Inclusive School status.
Inclusion Quality Mark provides schools with a nationally recognised framework to guide their inclusion journey. The IQM team help schools evaluate and measure how they are performing; empowering them to improve and grow. And when schools are successful, the IQM recognise their achievement through a system of highly valued awards that provide external validation of their inclusive status.
Lakeside Primary was highly praised by the assessor:
"It is clear from the moment of entering the school that Lakeside is a welcoming, vibrant, happy environment that attaches equal importance to personal development, wellbeing and exceptional pupil outcomes."
"There is a determination, led by the headteacher and supported by a highly capable leadership team, that barriers to learning will be identified and addressed."
"Inclusion is not a box to be ticked; at Lakeside it is clearly a mindset that underpins everything the school does."
