Junior Leadership Team


Our Junior Leadership Team (JLT) is a group of democratically elected children that represent the views of their peers. We think about solutions and we listen to the ideas of our peers before feeding back to the rest of the JLT.  This helps ensure all our children have a voice in how the school develops and works for all of us. Our JLT are proactive and organised, they use their JLT journals to document their in class discussions and JLT meeting outcomes.

The JLT meet to discuss school business. They meet with the senior leaders in school regularly to talk about the curriculum and new learning idea; sort out any issues, for example school lunches or play times. They also discuss ideas for fundraising and implement action plans.

What are the aims of The Junior Leadership Team?

  • To promote our school values: We are kind, We are safe and We are understanding
  • To encourage children to be actively involved with the school
  • To encourage children to suggest improvements
  • To make sure our school is a safe and happy place for children
