St Bede's School Council

At St Bede’s RC Primary School pupils like to have their say. We want our students to learn to be active and democratic citizens and we do this in a number of ways. School Council provides our young people with a forum to discuss their opinions and thoughts. It allows students to have a voice that is proactive in promoting positive change within the school.

Often our Key Stage 2 reps meet and have an opportunity to voice their opinions and reflect upon half termly class council meetings and ideas put forward. Those views are taken into account and discussed.

Students that join the school council enjoy being part of the decision making process. It gives them a sense of responsibility and pride in their school.

Sub Committee Teams

Health and Safety Inspectors:

Chosen for Autumn term:

Rishon, Jacob, Evie, Bobby

We have discussed as a council the importance of a healthy diet and lifestyle. We thought creating an eye-catching display in school would be a great way to raise the importance of a healthy lifestyle and help share key messages from Sugar Smart. We have looked at many different ideas and voted for our favourites. It was a split decision. Now, the Health and Safety reps will be choosing the popular parts from each design to create a unique display catered for the children in our school. 


Health and Safety Audit- 

 Each term we will complete a Health and Safety Audit for the school. The data and evidence collected will be fed back to Mrs.Winter

Audit completed September 2023. We were very happy with the health and safety of our school. We feel very safe here.

Internet Safety Day 

Relaunch of E-safety boxes. 

Internet safety at St Bede's School.  Be Safe, Be Smart!

We have created some  'SMART' rules for keeping safe online. It is important that every child follows these rules to keep safe online.

  • S is for safety. Don’t give out your personal information to people/places you don’t know.  


  • M is for meet. Meeting someone you have only been in touch with online can be very dangerous. Always check with an adult you trust.


  • A is for accepting. Accepting emails, files, pictures or texts from people you don’t know can cause problems.


  • R is for reliable. Check information before you believe. Is the person and website telling you the truth?


  • T is for tell. Tell and adult if someone or something makes you feel worried or uncomfortable.


In our school we have E-safety boxes in each Key Stage 2 class. They have been created for children to write down any concerns they have when online, or anything they have been exposed to that has made them feel uncomfortable. Our E-Safety reps will check these boxes often and report anything to Mrs.McMillan.


Eco Warriors:

Chosen for Autumn term:

Bogi, Olivia, Simon, Millie-Jo
