The aim of our School Council is to involve pupils in decision making in and around the school, and helps to promote an understanding of British Values and democracy. Two children from each year group are elected by their peers to be on the School Council, and they represent the voice and views of all the children. The School Council discusses any points raised and vote on a course of action.
Mrs Appleyard leads the Cutcombe School Council meetings helping to record notes of the meetings and facilitate discussions.
School Council Representatives are:
Year 4: Olivia and Max
Year 3: Bella and Eliza
Year 2: Sophie and Faye
Year 1: Hattie and Connor
Reception: Will be elected in the Spring term
