Children from Year 2 to Year 6 act as our worship leaders, helping to prepare for acts of worship throughout the school.
Our buddy mentors from Year 5 and Year 6 are available to support those who are feeling a bit lonely at break and lunch times.
Our wonderful angels help support our Office Staff at the end of the day. They also assist with the handing out of the first aid bags at break times and lunch times. As well as delivering the registers to the appropriate classrooms.
Our play leaders are Year 6 children who support KS1 children at lunchtimes. They set up, explain and play structured games with the younger children.
Our peer mediators are on hand at lunchtimes to give support (through restorative approaches) to those children who may have fallen out or need help playing with their friends.
Our young governors have representatives from Year 1 to Year 6. This wonderful team meets to discuss what is happening in our school and what improvements can be made. They then feedback to their classmates.
Each year staff choose a girl and boy from Year 6 to take on the responsibility of Head Boy and Head Girl, our school role models. These children liaise with Mrs Gillin throughout the school year and play a big part in driving pupil voice.
At St Cuthbert's every child, teacher and governor belongs to a house named for one of the patron saints of the British Isles. Children in Year 6 are elected to be House Captain and Vice Captain to role model the behaviours of their patrons.
Teamwork - as a fisherman Andrew needed to work in partnership.
Humility - he did not think he was worthy to emulate Jesus. To be humble is not to be arrogant or self important, it is to be modest.
Innovation - St David is said to have come up with the idea that members of the Welsh army should wear a Welsh leek to identify themselves and make sure they were fighting the enemy, not each other.
Sharing - David lived a simple life and did not place value on personal belongings, he did not like people saying 'my such and such'. He preferred to share essentials, rather than be what we would call today 'consumerist'.
Selflessness - George put the welfare of others first.
Bravery - George was both emotionally and physically brave to undertake his daring mission.
Clarity - Patrick was able to explain things to people and is said to have used the shamrock as a symbol to explain how God is three entities in one (God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit).
Exploratory - Patrick made many missional journeys, he travelled around Ireland a lot preaching and helping people.
