St Cuthbert's School Commitees
St Cuthbert’s Pupil Voice
At St. Cuthbert's we have several committees who meet regularly to discuss and share their thoughts and ideas. In this way, more children are able to represent school in a particular aspect. This decision was taken in response to pupils being disappointed at not being voted onto the School Council. They have been responsible for many changes in school including arranging tuck shop, Fairtrade, charity events and the ordering of new playground equipment.
Our Friendship Leaders meet weekly with Miss Brammah to discuss and share ideas and actions to help children who are finding friendship difficult. Successes have been the way in which pupils who are new to the school have been welcomed and encouraged by Friendship leaders.
Head and Deputy Boy / Girl
The children for these prestigious roles were voted for democratically by the whole school. They are the first port of call when showing around visitors, doing special jobs, connecting with the community and sharing their thoughts on the leadership of the school. Mr Finch takes responsibility for this.
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. They enjoy sharing ideas about how we can improve our Collective Worship & services including leading their own.
Sports Leaders and Sports Captains
Provide our PE leader, Miss Holstein with invaluable help arranging events, leading teams, organising playground games and suggesting ways in which PE can be improved.
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.
