Broadwater Down Primary School


Junior Leadership Team

At Broadwater Down Primary School, we believe that a strong community should support our children’s learning and developments and this includes the children themselves.

Children from Year 6 form the Junior Leadership Team (JLT). They take on a range of roles to enable them the chance to have leadership within the school, ensuring that their voices and opinions are heard.

Our current JLT takes on the following roles:

  • Junior Head Of School
  • House Captains
  • Wellbeing Leads

The JLT work in a range of ways including meeting to discuss current priorities, carry out learning walks, developing policies and helping to run whole school council meetings.

The Junior Leadership Team met with Mrs Harris and Mrs Fenton for their first meeting. One of the JLT said… 

“This week, we discussed reading. Mrs Harris said that it is important that we make sure children feel happy and safe in school. Some of the younger children in school may have missed out on some phonics and reading due to COVID, so we will be reading with these children throughout the year. We will work on boosting children’s confidence when reading by listening to them read and helping them sound out words. We also talked about giving out prizes and stickers after every few sessions to keep children motivated to try their best.”
