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 and three pupils from year 6, who take the positions of Chair, Treasurer and Secretary.
2023 - 2024 Junior Leadership Team
We are currently in the process of electing our new Junior Leadership Team. Elections will be taking place shortly.
Children put themselves forward as potential Junior leaders for their class. Children who want this exciting, yet responsible role then have to write and present a speech in front of their class, explaining why they would be the best candidate for the role.
Mrs Miles then arranges a ballot in the hall so that everyone could vote just like adult voting, giving everyone the chance to vote for who they wanted to represent their class.
We talk about British values and democracy; how it works and why we have it. The children chose their candidate and stand in the voting booth in order to keep the voting process as fair as possible, then they put their votes in the ballot boxes. The results will then be announced in Collective Worship. Here are some photographs from last years voting.
Autumn Term 2022
This year the JLT have hit the ground running; eager to make improvements in and around school. They went and visited the Mayor of Haringey's office. They met Councillor Gina Adamouher the 2022/2023 appointed Mayor of Haringey in her parlour where she talked to the children before giving them a tour. The children found it very inspiring.
