Welcome to Thameside Primary School
Through the school and eco councils, as well as through pupil consultations, we encourage our children to have a voice at Thameside. They work hard to improve the school and its environment.
As well as children learning we think it is really important that all our staff continue to develop their skills and we are delighted to be part of a Reading wide writing project working with educational writer and poet, Pie Corbett from January 2013. Two of our teachers are currently taking part in Shirley Clarke’s action research group on formative assessment which will improve practice not only in our school, but in schools nationwide. The results of this research will be reported in her next book.
We are also working with a local maths consultant.
We have strong partnerships with parents with the vast majority agreeing that their child enjoys school (Ofsted 2013).
Many parents volunteer to help in and around the school and we have a successful parent council. Workshops provide the opportunity for parents to understand how their children learn and how to help at home. Our reading workshop has proved particularly successful and has contributed to our success in teaching reading. If you would like to know more about reading please click here.
Our PTA, the Thameside School Association (TSA) is very active in the school and is currently helping us to fund new stage lighting.
Please take a moment to look at our Vision, Aims and Values which are the heart of what we do. If you would like to arrange a visit, please contact the school office and I will be delighted to show you around.
Our pupils have created some posters for a new website banner image representing our Values for a Rights Respecting School, larger versions are available to view here.
