St Cuthbert's SC

At the Federation of Fountains Earth and St Cuthberts there are a number of different committees. They are made up of children, staff and parents who help to organise events, activities and themed weeks for everyone to take part in.

St Cuthberts School Council

At St. Cuthbert's our School Council is made up of children from all year groups and allows the pupils to have a voice. We have meetings every half term where they bring new ideas and anything that they would like to report on behalf of their peers. They have been responsible for many changes in school including arranging tuck shop, Fairtrade, charity events and the ordering of new playground equipment.

St Cuthberts Health and Safety Committee

The H&S Committee meet approx. once per half term with Mrs Lumley to discuss H&S. The children learning about taking responsibility for themselves and others. They learn why we need to do the right thing and not put ourselves or others in danger. They learn about Risk Assessments and why they need to be done ie. So that we can still take place in activities as long as the risks have been assessed and it is deemed as safe as it possibly can be. The children take their role very seriously and they do report back to office if they see things that they think could be dangerous.

At the meetings we have discussed Fire Safety and why it is very important. The Annual H&S Inspection report is also discussed with the children and we even do our own walk around school to see what we can see that could be dangerous. It usually involves instruments that are left in a door way!

If any maintenance projects take place the children are involved in the process so that they feel they have made a difference to learning environment, it is also important that they can see results from their actions.

St Cuthberts Worship Committee

Worship committee is a group of children who help & plan what we do in Collective Worship at school. It is made up of pupils from each year group from year 2 upwards. We enjoy sharing ideas about how we can improve our Collective Worship & services.
