Westmoor Primary School

Work Together, Play Together, Succeed Together

School Council

The members of the council play a crucial part in the development of our school and each member takes their role very seriously. As a result of their hard work, they have organised and implemented many positive changes within the school.

The Selection of the School Council happens at the beginning of each School year. One child from each class in years 1/2, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 are elected from a range of nominees.

Once the Council is elected, they select a chair and vice chair. All School Councillors wear a distinctive badge and the team is facilitated by Mr Richardson.


From Buddy Bench monitors to advocates of Anti-bullying, we are role-models who truly represent the voice of the pupils at Westmoor Primary School, demonstrating Resilience, Reflectiveness, Resourcefulness, Responsibility , and respect.

  • We develop our school and ourselves by discussing ideas and making decisions, whilst respecting the views of everyone.

  • We work together, making every effort to ensure our School is the best school possible.

  • We aim to make pupils feel included, happy and safe.

School council 2018/19 We welcomed Paula Sherriff to announce this year's school council. We also loved learning all about democracy.

We are very grateful that Paula Sheriff MP for Dewsbury visted our school and answered some excellent questions! We learnt so much about local and national issues! Thank you Paula!

We had a great time organising our very own, Get Together! Everyone enjoyed a snack and their very own ' conversational menu'. We were so lucky with glorious weather!
