Ways to Help
The PTA wouldn't exist without your support.
The P in PTA stands for parent, which means you! Getting involved is critical to the success of our efforts. There are many rewarding ways to get involved - as a class rep, as an event coordinator or volunteer, or simply attending events and signing up for EasyFundraising / Amazon Smile. All contributions, both time and financial, whether large or small, are gratefully received and will go a long way to improve the school environment.
Volunteer - Class Reps / Event Helpers
Each class at Belleville Primary should have one or more Class Reps who will liaise between the class and the PTA. The role is critical to developing community by facilitating communication, recruiting volunteers for events and generally supporting their class and the PTA. It's fun and rewarding as class reps also organise class social events and coordinate teacher and staff gifts.
The PTA is always looking for volunteers to help us with our events or suggest new activities. We require all events to have a team of volunteers. Volunteers are fully supported by the PTA team who give all the background information, assist with format, communications and sponsorship. Events sadly won't happen if we don't have volunteers so grab some friends and come help out even if you can only commit to a small amount of time - everyone is welcome and it's lots of fun! Keep up to date via Classlist on upcoming event needs and contact us to get involved.
Online Shopping Donation Schemes
Every time you shop with online retailers a percentage of your purchase can go to the PTA.
On the Amazon app on your phone, select the ☰ menu and tap on 'Settings' > 'Amazon Smile' > select 'Belleville Pta' as your charity. Follow the on-screen instructions to activate AmazonSmile in the mobile app.
Also, sign-in to https://smile.amazon.co.uk with your Amazon account. Visit your Account page, select Change Your Charity and search and select 'Belleville School PTA'. Every time you buy from Amazon you will have to use https://smile.amazon.co.uk instead of the usual Amazon website.

The Belleville School PTA is now Gift Aid registered, which allows us to maximise your donations by claiming an extra 25p for every £1 you donate at no extra cost to you.
Did you know that many large companies support their employees charitable endeavours by matching their donations? Organisations may match fund in a variety of ways, the most common being: time donated by their staff for voluntary work, a direct donation made to our PTA, the matching of funds raised from a sponsored event, the matching of funds raised through a specific activity e.g. your class cake stall. Ask your employer if they operate a matched funding scheme.
