Junior Leadership Team (JLT)


Lead Teacher - Mrs Thomas

What is a Junior Leadership Team?       

A Junior Leadership Team is group of students who are elected to represent the views of all pupils and work together to improve their school.  We follow a democratic process to elect the Leaders.  If they wish to become a Junior Leader, the pupils must complete a short application form expressing why they feel they will be a member of the team. They then present their views to their class and a secret vote takes place.

Who are the Junior Leadership Team?

At Scawsby Junior Academy, we have at least 5 representatives from each year group that form part of the Junior Leadership Team.    

What do the Junior Leadership Team do?

The Junior Leadership Team meet staff every week and discuss issues that are important to the children.  They have an agenda which they create, a member of the JLT takes the minutes and another chairs the meeting.

They JLT meet with the governing body regularly to share their work with them.

They also have a higher level of input into the monitoring of the impact of the changes and improvements across the school and they contribute to the school self-evaluation document (SEF).  Other areas they focus on include: The ‘Going for 5ive’ Project, Outdoor Learning, Curriculum enrichment and wider opportunities. 

The pupils talk confidently about the role in setting the class behaviour expectations and are clear about the sanctions and rewards, understand the difference between right and wrong and the importance of fairness

How can you become a member of the Junior Leadership Team?             

Junior Leaders must model our School Values.  

I would like to update the school website page on school uniform because we should all be able to wear the same uniform we feel comfortable in.

In December our school held a Christmas Enterprise Fayre. We raised money so that we could buy new things for school. We are looking at getting after school clubs, fancy table cloths and condiments (ketchup!) for lunch and sports equipment.

We would like to run a school club as part of the JLT, where the pupils can be the teachers e.g. An English club run by the JLT.
