Junior Leadership Team (formally the School Council).
We have been learning all about democracy and we celebrate this value throughout the year in many ways, but mainly through our Junior Leadership Team (JLT). We value our JLT and are committed to inviting the children's opinions and including their ideas to improve our school. They have been involved in projects such as improving play times and lunchtimes and fundraising activities.
Each September, children have the opportunity to canvass for a JLT position. One boy and one girl are elected from each class.

JLT visit Parliament
In January, members of the Junior Leadership Team visited the House of Parliament in Westminster. Please see an extract from their Blog below...
"We learnt that parliament has 3 main parts. These are:
The House of Commons. (These are made up of MPs. MP stands for ‘Member of Parliament’.)
The House of Lords. (These are people who are usually born into their position.)
We found out about what happens when there are debates in the house of lords and the house of commons. When in agreement you have to a "Aye". When in disagreement you have to say "No". If the person in the big chair cannot decide, guess what happens!?
A bell is rung throughout the whole of parliament for just 8 minutes. People have to then gather in the ‘Aye’ corridor or the ‘No’ corridor to be counted."
Here are some photographs of their trip
