Belmont Primary School

  • 'Belmont has always struck the right balance between academia and learning for life.'
    Parent
  • 'A school that doesn't just excel at the academics but provides so much more, whether its music lessons and the lunchtime choir, or the 350 spaces in clubs each week, the football and netball teams or the shows that raise the roof of the top hall.'
    Parent Governor
  • 'The children are really fortunate to have such wonderful opportunities which is why they love Belmont and which makes it such an amazing school.'
    Parent
  • 'All adults in the school model very high expectations of themselves and of others. They show outstanding levels of care and concern for the personal development and well-being of each individual pupil.'
    Ofsted 2007

Previous On-going Notices: 

Snacks-

In KS2 children are required to bring in their own snacks to have at playtime. We are a healthy eating school so request that these are healthy snacks. The children are aware of this and we will be monitoring it carefully!

 

Routines

Swimming- Every Tuesday morning at Brentford Leisure Centre. Children need to bring their swimming costume, towel and swimming hat in a bag ever week and take it home again that day. Goggles are optional.

PE- Every Monday afternoon. Children will need a full Belmont PE kit with some warmer clothes as we get into the colder weather. Please make sure that everything is labelled.

French- Thursday afternoons.

Recorders- Thursday afternoons. The children will be able to bring their recorders home to practice so please make sure that these are returned to school for the lesson each Thursday. The recorders are on loan from Hounslow so please ensure they are looked after.

 

Home Learning

Recent and extensive educational research has found that homework for primary aged children has minimal impact unless it reinforces learning and regularly allows children to rehearse and practise skills and facts e.g. times tables and spellings.

 

Reading

Children are expected to read at home regularly (at least 15 - 20 minutes daily) and to discuss their reading with an adult at home to develop language and comprehension.  Reading Record books must be brought into school every Monday to be checked. It may be that the Reading Record is checked more than once during the week.  Children are able to change their reading book whenever they need to.  Also children may borrow books from the Junior Library. We encourage the children to share their library book with an adult at home as well.

 

As previously mentioned we will check the children's Reading Record books every Monday but children can change their reading book at any point during the week if they have read the ones they already have. We are really encouraging them to take ownership with this and have discussed the importance of reading everyday.
