Welcome to West Byfleet Infant School. We have recently joined forces as Co-Heads of the school, with Shirley James going down to 2 days a week (Tuesday and Wednesday), having been Head Teacher since September 2002, and Sarah Smithers being promoted to Co Head for 3 days a week (Monday, Thursdays and Fridays) and continuing as Deputy Head for the other 2 days a week. We hope our website provides you with a brief snapshot of the school, how much we love working with our children, and a window into our school community. We are so proud of our wonderful school and would love you to see us "first hand" in action, so please pay us a visit soon.
Our school vision is "The children in our care only get one chance! We aim to provide the highest quality of education for all the children in our school, ensuring they reach their true potential, academically, emotionally and socially."
Our mission statement at West Byfleet Infant School is "We Belong, Inspire, Succeed". The staff and children really "live out" our vision and this motto, through our vibrant curriculum and high expectations. We pride ourselves on our welcoming and caring ethos where everyone belongs to our West Byfleet family. Our key values underpin our success, inspiring children, parents, staff and governors to learn and grow together.
West Byfleet Infant School provides a caring and supportive environment and has high expectations of success in all areas of the curriculum. Our team is committed to creating an enthusiasm for learning and providing the best education, to enable all our children to achieve their full potential and to love learning. Through a stimulating, engaging curriculum, that encompasses indoor and outdoor learning opportunities, we ensure that every day counts and is fun.
We enjoy working closely with parents and recognise the importance of establishing strong home/school partnerships. We understand that the health and safety of all our children is of paramount importance, so our school provides a safe environment in which our children can flourish.
We are very proud of our school and its achievements, including our "Outstanding" OFSTED inspection (May 2008), which highlights our strengths, including our high standards of behaviour, progress and attainment. We have strong links with West Byfleet Junior School.
We hope you enjoy our website and that you get a flavour for the opportunities we provide here at West Byfleet.

We Believe In Success
