Other clubs are run with the aim of representing the school in competitive leagues and cups. We run numerous teams including:
Many of the squads have B teams and in the new academic year we hope to run C teams as well... watch this space!
Representing the school is a fantastic learning experience and one the pupils understand is a huge privilege. It teaches them teamwork, independence, resilience, sportsmanship, etiquette and responsibility. These work in tandem with Thameside's Co-operative values.

A huge part of Thameside Primary's PE provision focusses on lunchtime and after school clubs and teams. There are clubs every lunchtime and every day after school, giving the pupils numerous activities to enrich their PE experience. Many, such as dance and gymnastics, are non-competitive allowing the pupils to develop their skills and enjoy their experience.

In Key Stage 2, pupils are given the opportunity to consolidate their existing skills and learn how to refine and adapt them to improve their effectiveness.
They learn how to work as part of a team and overcome problem solving activities. Pupils take more responsibility for their learning and are encouraged to seek and give feedback on their own and others' performances. They are also encouraged to seek and give feedback on their own performance and look at areas where they can improve.
