At Thameside Primary we offer a broad and balanced curriculum that engages and enthuses children in learning.
We ensure pupils receive a diverse and exciting range of experiences; we encourage working outside, and using our fantastic grounds and locality to enrich their learning.
To support children's early reading development we use the ReadWriteInc programme and provide workshops for parents on phonics. See more about Read Write Inc by clicking the icon opposite.
Thameside Primary is rare in having a specialist PE Team who is dedicated to expanding the reach and benefits of PE across the curriculum. Look at our PE page here.
Read Write Inc., developed by Ruth Miskin, provides a structured and systematic approach to teaching literacy. It is used by more than a quarter of the UK's primary schools and is designed to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers.
Each Read Write Inc. programme meets the higher expectations of the new curriculum and uses effective assessment to accelerate every child's progress.

In September 2014, Thameside made the local news for undertaking the learning of Latin throughout Key Stage 1 and 2. Our pupils and teachers took to it with great enthusiasm, and the language can now be seen and heard throughout the school on a daily basis. This is just one example of the innovative and creative steps Thameside continually takes to develop standards of teaching and learning throughout the school.
