From Monday 30th November we will be running a breakfast club in the Hub.
Toast and cereal will be available for students between 8am – 8.25am.
Our Key Stage 3 students entered a poetry competition to create a poem for the Cathedral’s Festival of Remembrance on Saturday 7th November.
The poems were to be based around the theme of “The Return” encouraging students to think and write about soldiers returning from war and their families waiting at home.
We are proud to announce that Alice Robson was the winner of this competition, with Cameron Tait and Emily Bainbridge competition runners-up. We are delighted with the effort made by all of our students who entered this competition; the standard was very high.
Alice will be reading her poem at the Remembrance Concert, which will be held in the Cathedral on Saturday 7th November at 7pm.
Alice can be seen reading her poem via this link to the Northern Echo article
We were proud to host a Presentation Evening, attended by the Mayor of Durham, Councillor Jan Blakey, to celebrate the success of over 40 students who were awarded either the Duke of Edinburgh or the Youth Achievement Bronze Award.
The evening gave students the opportunity to showcase the fabulous work they have completed during the last year in order to gain their awards.
Both the school and the One Point Youth Team are very proud of the commitment and hard work our students have shown.
We are delighted to be the only secondary school in Central Durham to have an organisation such as Friends of Belmont linked with our school.
The Friends of Belmont School consists of a combination of caring, enthusiastic and supportive parents, carers, students, ex-students, teachers, staff, family and members of the local community.
Our aim is to help support our students in whatever way we can, particularly by encouraging and providing closer links between home and school.
Everyone is welcome to join us no matter how much time you have to spare. It is not necessary that you attend every event, or every meeting; we realise time is valuable and appreciate input from everyone, no matter how small.
If you would like any further information on any of our fundraising activities or would like to become involved with ‘The Friends of Belmont’ please do not hesitate to contact Elaine Morgan via the school email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
Dear Parents and Carers
As you may be aware we are collecting food items to send to people who are less fortunate than ourselves and who have been forced from their homes into refugee status.
We would like each student to try to bring in one of the items below for us to make a whole-school contribution to the aid effort.
|Tinned kidney beans||Cooking sauces|
|Tinned carrots||Shampoo or Soap|
|Tinned tuna||Roll on deodorant|
If you are able, please could you send one of these items into school with your child over the next two weeks, in order for us to put a whole school aid parcel together.
The items will be collected during form time and sent to help people less fortunate than ourselves.

Dear Parents and Carers
Following a request by parents, carers and students, I am happy to announce that the school site will be open from 8am each morning for students, should they wish to arrive early. This change will take effect from Monday 12th October.
Students arriving early should go to our Learning Resource Centre, via the main gate, which we are also opening early. Our professional librarian, Miss Roe, will be on hand to assist students whilst they work or read quietly.
Safeguarding and promoting the well-being of the pupils in our care is of paramount importance to the staff and governors of Belmont Community School. As such, we aim to make our site as safe as possible for students and would therefore like to remind you that cars are prohibited on site between 8:30am – 9:15am, 11:55am – 1:15pm and 2:45am – 3:30pm with the following exceptions:
May I also take this opportunity to remind you that school will be closed to students on 2nd November for teacher training.
The Heads of Year will be writing out to parents in the next week to inform you of key dates for your diaries across the year.
Open Evening will take place on Thursday 24th September 2015.
