Bellefield’s Parent Teachers Association (BPTA) proactively supports the school to help every child enjoy learning, achieve success and become contented and fulfilled. BPTA organises a whole host of fun events throughout the school year, as well as securing funding from third parties to raise money that helps pay for additional equipment, educational resources and trips, to the benefit of every pupil in the school. Recently the PTA has helped fund the brilliant new outdoor play equipment that is already much-loved by all our children! To find out how to join the PTA please email email@example.com
