JUNIOR LEADERSHIP TEAM
What is the Junior Leadership Team?
At Stanwell Fields we are proud to have pupil representatives that take part in our Junior Leadership Team.
The Junior Leadership Team acts like a School Council and is in place so that pupils have a voice and are involved in decisions about the school that affect them.
Every class from Year 1 to Year 6 has a class representative and through them all pupils have the opportunity to raise issues, share ideas and take part in discussions that involve themselves and their classmates in reaching democratic solutions. The class representatives meet regularly to discuss any issues or ideas that have arisen during class discussions.
How are Junior Leaders chosen?
At the beginning of the school year our pupils are given the opportunity to complete an application form to become a member of the Junior Leadership Team. These applications are then shared with the class and prospective representatives have a chance to share their views on why they feel they are best suited to be their class representative. The pupils then vote for one child to be the class representative for the year.
What do the Junior Leadership Team do?
The Junior Leadership Team have been involved in many projects and duties over the last few years including:
- Organising a fundraising activity for Christian Aid where all children in the school created a recycled flower pot to sell,
- Fundraising for the NSPCC through an organised ‘Beat the Goalie’ activity on Number Day,
- Fundraising for the Anti-Bullying Alliance and raising awareness of bullying and how to show respect to each other,
- Ordering lunch time play equipment,
- Representing the school at Remembrance Day services,
- Attending the local 75th D-Day anniversary commemorations.
