Reg Charity: 1188501
The Montbelle PTA is a registered charity (# 1188501) run by a collaboration of parents, carers and school staff, who’s aim is to support the school by raising as much money as we can to enhance, enrich and improve learning experiences for the children, including new library books and funding for much needed IT upgrades.
We also provide funding for those little extras that make school more memorable, such as pantomime shows, workshops, playground improvements and many more.
The PTA is run by a committee who are all volunteers. We are always looking for new people to help keep the PTA going; from becoming a committee member to helping at an event.
We are a mix of parents, grandparents and carers; working mums, stay at home dads and everything in between. We have regular meetings which alternate between daytime at the school and evenings (normally in the pub) so we can strive to be as inclusive as possible.
Our current lead committee is:
Chair: Phil Sands
Treasurer: Ayse Naim
Asst Treasurer: Carly Coverdale
Secretary: Rachel Toolan
Asst Secretary: Carla Allen
There is also a small but dedicated army of volunteers who make things happen. We would love it if you would consider giving some time to help us continue to provide enrichment for the children of Montbelle.

|Montbelle Melodies|| ||
|Edit Solyom-Leach||My three children used to attend Montbelle and have all since graduated the school. I have been running the Rainbow Rhythm Singing Club, teaching Kodaly method, in Montbelle for 19 years providing an engaging and fun environment for music learning. Playing in the Womble Ensemble is my favourite hobby and I would love other children and parents to experience the satisfaction that we feel when we play together. I strongly believe that any music enhances children’s personalities and makes them happier and more balanced individuals. “Music multiplies the beauty of life and all its values.” (Zoltan Kodaly)
|Angie May ||I have been a Montbelle mum for the past ten years and my youngest child is currently in upper key stage 2. Music is my passion and I also love working with children which led me to become a Suzuki piano teacher. I have thoroughly enjoyed all the concerts and talent shows we have held at school. It has been a joy to watch the children progress in their music journeys and grow in confidence as they perform on stage. I hope these experiences will stay with them for many years to come.
|Sherryann Macleod-Carey ||I have a son in year 5 and a daughter who used to go to Montbelle. Unlike Edit and Angie I am not musically trained but as a parent it always amazes me to see our children perform with such talent and bravery. I am an avid home baker and therefore help at the refreshments stall during the concerts and in any other way I can. I even ended up playing with the Womble Ensemble! If I can do it, anyone can and my kids just couldn't be happier!
