Our Academy Family

In November 2014 the British Values published guidance on promoting British Values in schools, to ensure pupils leave school prepared for life in modern Britain.

At Thameside, we have worked to link the British Values with our own

Co-operative values, making them part of our everyday school life.

British Values

Thameside Primary School is a partner in the Osborne Co-operative Academy Trust.  We believe that all pupils in this community should be able to achieve their full potential through good and outstanding teaching and learning based on the Co-operative values.  All pupils, parents, staff and other stakeholders are therefore encouraged to contribute to the school as an autonomous learning community.  Thameside Primary School’s ethos is based on the Co-operative values of self-help, self-responsibility, democracy, equality, equity and sharing a sense of collective responsibility for supporting each other.


The Osborne Co-operative Academy Trust is committed to the Co-operative values.  We are all members of the Schools’ Co-operative Society and work in partnership to support other Co-operative Schools.  Our core co-operative values are:

Self Help
In a Co-operative people help each other whilst helping themselves by working together for mutual benefit.  

Individuals within Co-operatives act responsibly and play a full part in the organisation.


A Co-operative will be structured so that members have control over the organisation – one member, one vote.

Each member will have equal rights and benefits (according to their contribution).

Members will be treated justly and fairly.

Members will support each other, their communities and other co-operatives.
