Generally, our meetings take place once a month on Thursdays from 2:30pm, although this can be more regular when organising an event. As everybody's lifestyle is different we understand that at times you might not be able to attend a meeting so we make sure that anyone who isn't able to make it is kept up-to-date with information.
Being on the PTA doesn't have to be a full time job and we welcome and appreciate any input. We have members who are not often able to attend meetings of events, but who do a lot of work behind the scenes, whether it be making phone calls, shopping for and ordering equipment, or doing a little bit of research to help with organising events. Any help we receive really does make a difference.
I look forward to meeting you soon!
Chair of Friends of Thameside/PTA
Hi, my name is Cheryll Watt and I am the Chair of Friends of Thameside/PTA.
I have been a parent at Thameside Primary School for 10 years.
Being a member of the PTA allows you to get to know school staff members on a familiar basis. It is a good way to get your face known and meet other parents. Every parent or carer that joins the PTA have all got one thing in common - improving the school for the benefit of its pupils. The PTA are a big part of the school community and are great at getting families together.

Our Summer Fayre is taking place on Friday 12th July after school.
We are grateful to receive soft toys and teddies (in good condition), for the soft toy tombola stall, tins and packets of non-perishables, unwanted toiletries and gift sets. Donations of bottles, which can range from soft drinks, water and also alcohol, for our very popular "lucky bottle" stall, are also requested. All donations can be left at the school office.
If you are interested in running a stall please speak to a member of the office staff. We would also like to hear from any parents or carers that can come along and assist with the preparations in setting up, please.
The PTA are looking for new members to join!
If you'd like to join and start fundraising just get in touch or come and leave your details at the main school office!
