Junior Leadership Team (formally the School Council).
We have a Junior Leadership Team (JLT) made up of two elected children from each class. This year the elected members were presented with a gold badge by the Mayor of Haringey in a very special Collective Worship. 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.

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
Current topics of discussion
At present the JLT are discussing lunchtime play and what improvements can be made. They are drawing up a rota for the multi-purpose pitch so that all children can use it at lunchtime.
Last year, the JLT worked hard to launch a snack shack and help the school achieve Healthy Schools Gold status. They did a fantastic job presenting our school’s success at City Hall in front of hundreds of adults and enjoyed lunch on the top floor afterwards.
This year the JLT are planning to improve and develop the snack shack and our going to make better use of the Smoothie maker purchased last year.
The JLT last year wrote to Councillor Jennifer Mann, The Mayor of Haringey to ask for her help to tidy up and sort out the pathway into the Key Stage 2 playground. They had noticed some dangerous litter and they found it sad to start the day walking through such an unsightly mess. This year the JLT have already spoken to the Mayor of Haringey about litter and are hoping to see another improvement to our KS2 entrance soon.
The JLT this year are going to be planning and running an exciting fundraising event. Watch this space!
The JLT regularly meet with Caterlink to review the School Dinner Menu. Please click on the photograph below for the notes from their latest meetings.
