School Council


West Byfleet Infant School Council

Here at West Byfleet Infant School, we believe it is very important for ALL children to have a voice and feel as though their views and opinions count.

Every Term, each class from Year 1 and Year 2 holds an election to find their class representative.

Each councillor has to ensure that the views of all of the children in their class are heard. They work hard to find ways of collecting the ideas and suggestions of the rest of the school by having:

  • class votes
  • a notebook to record the views of others
  • suggestion boxes
  • questionnaires

Our school council is led by Mrs Claire Clark. We meet once a week to talk about any issues that have been raised by the children in our class and work though our action plan.  If you have any ideas about how we can make West Byfleet Infant School a better place, then speak to your class councillor today!
