Our village of Belton
We are proud of the strong links we have with the village and the active part we play in the community. We are particularly involved in the village life when we keep the tradition of Maypole dancing alive in Belton in May each year. Belton is one of only 3 villages in the country to have a permanent May Pole and this tradition goes back hundreds of years.
We crown a May Queen chosen from one our Year 6 girls and process through the village to the sounds of the accordion, each child dressed in traditional costume - girls in white dresses and boys in white shirts, red ties and grey shorts. Each child carries a May Stick and the younger children carry posies too to present to the May Queen.
On Remembrance Sunday we are asked to lay a wreath at the memorial at church and our children walk from the village hall to the memorial and lay the wreath.
Other activites we are involved in include bulb planting in the recreation ground and monitoring traffic and parking when we look at transport as part of our topic work.
We invite members of the village to events held at school such as the Macmillan coffee morning.
