Belmont Community Primary School opened on 2nd September 1975 and our first Headteacher, Mr Long, kept a log of the events happening in school. Here are two extracts; the first written on the day the school opened and the second ten years later.
We celebrated our 40th birthday on Friday 25 September 2015. During the day, the children learnt more about the 1970's, 1980's and 1990's and produced some fabulous work which was shared in a whole school assembly in the afternoon. We also welcomed our special guest, Mr Armstrong, who has a long history with the school; from being a parent and member of the PTA in the 1970's to being Chair of the Governing Body for a number of years.
As a bit of fun, staff brought in photos of themselves when they were children and the pupils tried to guess who they were. It was made extra difficult as we printed the photos in black and white! Daniel and Freddie in Year 6 managed to identify the most - 7. As you can see below, it was tricky!
