Leighton Primary School

Junior Leadership Team 

The JLT was selected through a rigorous election process. Firstly, candidates had to submit a manifesto to their class teacher detailing why exactly they would be a good JLT and what they hope to achieve in the role. The class teacher then proposed the most suitable candidates from these to the rest of the class, who then had to vote on them.

The JLT people were chosen for their honesty, friendliness, and general happy vibes.

The first suggestion the JLT has implemented are suggestion boxes which can be found in every year group. This is for children to write down any ideas they have for improving the school.

The JLT are also responsible for being playground buddies and will man the friendship stops when they arrive. 


October Newsletter information

Meet your JLT!

The new JLT was announced at the end of September after a thorough election process. Potential candidates had to submit their manifestos to their class teacher who then put forward the

candidates who had impressed them the most. The class then voted and the winners had to wait a week to find out the

results. There is a JLT from each class from year 2 all the way up to year 6. You can see our photos on the JLT noticeboard or identify us from our new turquoise badges that we are wearing with pride.

Our Aims:

The main aim of the JLT is to help improve the school. They will be doing this in lots of different ways:

Þ Represent the school at a range of events

Þ Be a friend to everyone in school

Þ Communicate and action improvement ideas to the SLT

Big Meeting!

We are attending our first SLT meeting on Thursday 19th

October and will report back to the school. We will be sharing some initial improvement ideas and are looking forward to seeing how decisions about the school are made.

Don’t forget if you have any ideas, pop them in your ideas post box in your classroom or speak to a JLT member!


JLT Jackets 

The JLT have now got Jackets to wear at break and lunch times so the other children can identify them and talk to them if they are feeling lonely or unhappy about anything.
