School Description by Ofsted

Information about this school
Thameside Primary School opened in September 2012 as an academy, sponsored by St Clere's Co-operative Trust, following the closure of former infant and junior schools. The headteacher joined the school when it opened as an academy.

The school is larger than most other primary schools, and the number of pupils is steadily rising.

Approximately two thirds of pupils are of minority ethnic heritage, and a high proportion of pupils speak English as an additional language.

The proportion of pupils who are supported by the pupil premium, which is additional funding for pupils known to be eligible for free school meals and for those who are in care, is well-above average.

The proportion of disabled pupils and those who have special educational needs supported at school action is broadly average. The proportion supported at school action plus or with a statement of special educational needs is above average.

The school meets the government's current floor standards, which set the minimum expectations for pupils' attainment and progress in reading, writing and mathematics.

During the current academic year, a significant proportion of pupils joined or left the school, other than at the usual times.

As a new academy, the school had a monitoring visit by the Department for Education in April 2014.
