Dear Parent/Carer,


It's been a pleasure to see the children settle in to their routines in our first full week back at school for Years 1 to 6.  We have welcomed our new Reception and Nursery pupils this week and it has been a pleasure getting to know them.  We look forward to a very exciting year here at Lakeside and all the wonderful things planned for your children to enjoy, immerse themselves in and thrive. 



I'm sure that you're all aware that Monday 19th September, the day of the Queen's funeral, is a Bank Holiday, and the school will be closed.  Please note that Dragonflies Playcare will also be closed on this day.  Thank you.


School Lunches: no sandwiches/baguettes/rolls

As you can see from the menu, a full range of hot meals for school lunches is provided by Cardiff Catering.  Please note that sandwiches, baguettes and rolls are NOT available on normal school lunch days.  You can only order these for days when your child is going on a school trip and needs a packed lunch.  The school kitchen does not stock any bread products other than on days when there is a school trip, and then only enough for pupils who are going on the trip.  Thank you.


Reduce Reuse Recycle PTA Uniform Event

Many thanks to the PTA for organising this event and to all the families who supported it.  An amazing £260 was raised in a very short time and this will be donated to the DEC Pakistan Flood Appeal

Cake Sale

Kicking off our first event next Friday 23rd September with a cake sale at pick up (from 3.30pm). Please can Year 2 and 6 lead this event with all proceeds going to the wonderful MacMillan Cancer Support. The cake sale stalls need to be managed by the year group parents, cakes sent in with your child/ children in the morning, and remember everything supplied needs to be nut free, (homemade or bought is totally fine). We have sent the paper plates home with Year 2 and Year 6 today.

 More news to follow soon of events planned for this term by the PTA - watch this space!

After-school Clubs

Clubs start the week beginning 20th September, 2022, and the first session of Choir will take place on Monday 26th September due to the Bank Holiday.


Wishing you all a pleasant weekend.


Best wishes,


Rachel Mitchell, Headteacher
