For your diary
Your Chairperson is Sacha Patterson leading the PTA in the pursuit of fun and fundraising. We encourage you to become involved with the PTA in whatever capacity you can and welcome new and existing parents at the school to join us.
Without the support of all the parents, carers and teachers at the school, the PTA couldn't fund projects that have added so much value to the children's education and enjoyment of Belmont Primary School. The aim is not just fundraising; it's also about increasing the values of our school community and creating unique bonds across the school family that makes Belmont Primary School feel like a special place to be part of. It's a great way to get to know other parents particularly if you are a new parent to the school. It also gives the children a real sense of belonging. If you'd like to get involved, in any way you can, please contact us and we look forward to welcoming you onboard!
"I remember that first PTA meeting, hesitantly walking into the staff room and instantly recognising some faces from the P1 playground and my daughter’s new class. I quickly found it to be an extremely welcoming group of people, collectively pulling together for a common cause - fundraising for the school and knowing that in some way we are bettering the school environment and educational experience for our children."
Funds Raised 2015/2016
In the 2015/2016 academic year, events organised by the PTA raised over £8,500.
If you have any ideas (no matter how unusual they are) that have the potential to raise funds for the school or are aware of funding opportunities that we could tap into, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

The success of any PTA event is due to the support provided by it’s volunteers. A number of our events are limited in size simply due to insufficient volunteers to man the various activities we propose to offer. This year we are planning to make events bigger and better. To do that we will need your help, therefore we are launching a PTA membership drive. We are asking for parents, grandparents and friends to register to help support our PTA events. You can provide support in a number of ways, you can attend PTA meetings, give us your ideas, volunteer your time organising events, give time to help set up, help man a stall or help with special skills e.g. photography.
