St Cuthbert’s Breakfast Club is held every morning from 7:30 in the Belle Vue Centre. This is a free activity club. The ages range from Nursery to Year 6. The children are giving toast, variety of cereals and fruit.It is funded by Greggs, Endeavour Housing and local ward councillors.
THE WALKING BUS
A ‘Walking bus’ operates every morning before school and every afternoon. It begins at Catcote Road shops, and travels down Oxford Road with designated stops. Your child is able to meet the bus at an arranged stop and can then walk safely to school with our driver and conductor. There is no charge for the walking bus. Any child who wishes to join the bus must have the appropriate consent forms completed, so if you would like your child to take part in this, please contact Miss Tumilty through the school office. The school Behaviour Policy and its consequences still apply on the walking bus.
CHANGE 4 LIFE CLUB
Change 4 Life is a scheme created by the government to help encourage children and families in our country to live a happy healthy life. St Cuthbert’s has a Change 4 Life Club to encourage this throughout our school.
Every Monday after school, Miss Tootill runs the club with the help from the Champions and Crew. The champions and crew support Miss Tootill in activities and encourage the children in school to maintain a healthy and active life.
Children in KS2 are invited to join the club and take part in activities based on finding fun and creative ways to stay healthy and active.
Every Wednesday the club lead ‘Wake up, Shake up Wednesday’ (an energetic dance routine which KS2 take part in at the end of dinner time). It aims to ‘wake’ the children up before their afternoon lessons and it also gets them exercising!
see - think - do
The Society of St Vincent de Paul has been engaging with young people and education since its earliest days. Today the SVP England & Wales is pleased to highlight its continuing strong links with young people, through the development of its new 'Mini Vinnies' programme - a ground-breaking Primary Schools initiative, based on good work done in Australia, piloted in the Diocese of Shrewsbury, and which is seen as having, "the potential to significantly contribute to the future of our Society."
'Mini Vinnies' are children aged between 7 to 11 (or younger) who, with the permission of their parents and the support of their Schools, are encouraged to embark on their first steps as possible 'Vincentians for life'.
As Mini Vinnies, the youngsters have their own 'treasured' Prayer, Pledge and Badge, a dedicated website and a range of bright and colourful documents which guide them in their formative steps - helping and enabling them to become in every sense, young Vincentians - or 'Mini Vinnies'.
