Lakeside Primay Academy is an inclusive school where diversity is celebrated.

At Lakeside Primary Academy we aim to ensure that all pupils, regardless of their specific needs, make the best possible progress in school. We aim to be as inclusive as reasonably possible, in meeting the needs of pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities.

The four broad ‘areas of need’ are Communication and Interaction, Cognition and Learning, Social, Emotional and Mental Health Difficulties, and Sensory and Physical Needs.

What is the Local Offer?

The Children and Families Bill came into effect from September 2014. Local Authorities and schools are required to publish and keep under review information about services they expect to be available for the children with Special Educational Needs.

This is the ‘Local Offer’. The intention of the Local Offer is to improve choice and transparency for families.

To find out more about the Local Offer from Derby City Council, detailing the services offered by the Local Education, Health and Care Authorities see the website below:  



The admission arrangements for ALL pupils are in accordance with national legislation, including the Equality Act 2010.  This includes children with any level of SEN; those with Education, Health and Care Plans and those without. The Local Authority (Derby City Council) administers admissions into the school.


As an inclusive school we promote education which values and accepts all children as equal members of the school community. We acknowledge children have the right to achieve as much as they can in their academic, physical, social and emotional development. Our SEN Policy reinforces the need for teaching that is fully inclusive. The Trust will ensure that appropriate provision will be made for all pupils with SEN. 


The school’s complaints procedure can be reviewed in full on our website.
