Belvidere Parent Teacher Association
As a parent/carer of a student at Belvidere, we welcome you to join our PTA. The extent of your involvement is very much down to you and the time you have available. Any support is valued and appreciated. We always need new people to help at our school discos and social evenings, or to provide refreshments at school events. The more people we have on board the better!
What we do?
Here at Belvidere, we are a small, enthusiastic and friendly group of parents/carers who are keen to be part of secondary school life. We maintain a connection with school, something which can often be lost when children start secondary education. We all share a common interest, which is to raise money to help fund the ‘extras’ that normal school funding can’t always stretch to. We hope that all students can benefit from the money we raise at some point in their school career.
We plan and organise a wide variety of activities throughout the school year. This has included our 100 Club, social evenings (for example Chocolate Bingo), raffles, uniform sales and our popular KS3 school discos. We also provide refreshments at school events (for example shows, plays and concerts).
The PTA meets once every half term to plan events. We are always on the lookout for new fundraising ideas! It might be that something worked well at your child’s primary school or you have an idea you would like to try – please do get in touch!
The money we have raised from all our events has funded:
- Year 10 celebration of achievement
- Board games for the learning support department
- Headphones for computing
- Books for pupils
- Raffle prizes for school shows
- DJs for discos
- Help towards Summer School
You can get involved by:
- Joining the 100 Club
- Encourage your children to support school discos
- Bring your family and friends to the events we organise
- Help serve refreshments at school events.
- Have a chat to us when you drop your child off at the Year 7 Disco
Everyone is welcome to come to any of our meetings - we would be delighted to talk to you and you can meet the full team!
Please contact us if you are interested in joining!
