Belleville School PTA
Improving the quality of school life for our children
Welcome to our PTA website, dedicated to providing you with everything you need to know about what’s going on and when. We have created this site for you to make it easier for you to access specific PTA related news and events. We hope you like what you find here. This is all run by parents working hard to keep up the tradition of the fabulous Belleville parent community.
To all parents new to Belleville, an extra special welcome! This year the PTA haven't been able to hold the fabulous events that previous years have enjoyed, but we sincerely hope that before too long, we will be able to mix and have fun again. Here you will get a taste of the sorts of events that happen in a normal year and these WILL happen again.
PTA have recently funded c£40,000 for 2 years tuition for music lessons. We are one of the few state schools to offer this to all students in their fourth year. We have also just invested in a resource called Now>Press>Play. It provides an immersive audio/drama experience for children in all year groups and subjects. In addition, we've funded the home learning kits and thermometers.
Plans to renovate the Webbs' playgrounds were halted due to Covid but we are hoping that the first stage of this will be May half term. Playgrounds are very very costly, so we are looking for support from all of our lovely parents with our fun initiatives and donations.
Get involved with our events to help with fundraising and please remember every time you shop on-line, you can make easy cash for the school. Just sign up to EasyFundraising and AmazonSmile and choose Belleville PTA as your charity. It’s the simplest way to contribute without any effort at all.
Who We Are
The Belleville PTA is a charitable organisation run by volunteer parents and carers at Belleville School. We are made up of trustees, event managers/volunteers and class reps - all of whom generously donate their time and energy to help improve our school and community.
What We Do - Investment Highlights
The PTA has three main responsibilities - building community, fostering communication and most importantly, fundraising and working together with the school to identify how we can improve the educational and recreational life of our children. Some of our recent donations have been used to fund the following:
Outdoor Learning Areas
PTA funded the renovation of the outdoor learning spaces for all Reception classes. We invested in new flooring, three-sided easels, storage cupboards and learning aids.
Year 4 Music Programme
Partnering with Wandsworth Music, all Belleville Year 4 children learn to play an instrument, culminating in an amazing concert at the end of the year in the Royal Festival Hall.
We purchased 15,000 new books for class libraries and guided reading.
Webb's Playground Upgrade
We have invested in detailed architectural 3D plans for playground redevelopment. The school is at the planning stage with this exciting initiative.
