Junior Leadership Team

What is Junior Leadership Team?

Junior Leadership Team (JLT) is a group of children who meet each week to discuss issues within the school. There is one Junior Leadership Team member from each class in Key Stage 2.


Watch a short feature about how the voting process for choosing the new JLT members is carried out.

Why do we have a Junior Leadership Team?

  • To improve the school according to the children's point of view.
  • To make sure each class has a platform to voice their opinions.
  • To discuss and raise issues.


Each member meets with the JLT Lead once a fortnight. The issues are then raised in the meetings and we discuss how to move forward with these ideas. We carry out surveys and votes within their classes so that each class’ opinion is represented. These opinions are then fed back to the council and the opinion of the majority is taken forward.
