Giving Our Children A Sense Of Direction for More Than 200 Years

Student Council



Our Head Persons

At West Bretton School we believe that our pupils should have a voice and help us lead the school forward, making it the best school it can be. Our student council does just that!

The student council meets with Mrs Firth, the Headteacher, on a regular basis and makes important decisions about key issues in school.  It is also heavily involved in organising school fundraising events to benefit others. 

The council is made up of at least two representatives from each class, who are elected by their peers, after creating their own manifestos.  The children are responsible for gathering the views of their class as well as suggesting enterprising ideas of their own.

The student council is involved in organising curriculum activities such as World Book Day and Anti-Bullying Week, raising money for Children in Need and Comic Relief. Members have also taken part in interviewing new staff.

In 2015, in response to pupil questionnaires, we appointed a Head Girl and Head Boy. They assist in running the school - especially with pupil voice!
