At Grange Farm, we know that when children feel safe, comfortable, happy and engaged they can make the most of their potential.
As well as having a very open culture in terms of listening to children, we also have plenty of opportunities set up for children to feedback their views and ideas and to get involved in making their school an even better environment for learning and enjoyment.
Junior Leadership Team
Every year, children in Year 6 have the opportunity to form our Junior Leadership Team (JLT) where they get involved in different aspects of school life and have a chance to support the running of the school.
There are four key positions within the JLT:
- Head Boy
- Head Girl
- Deputy Head Boy
- Deputy Head Girl
Our JLT is elected as part of a democratic approach which is a great way to educate the children about this key value. Children who are interested in being elected are given the opportunity to apply for election process through a formal application process. The successful candidates are then selected by the school leadership team to share with their peers why they feel they would make an excellent member of JLT through canvassing and candidate hustings. Year 6 children then have the opportunity to vote in a secret ballot for their chosen candidate.
2023-2024 elections are current taking place now! Watch this space for the result coming soon.
Each member of the JLT heads up a sub team of children from Year 5 and 6 who have a key focus in the school. It is a great way for our older children to get involved in school life and take on some additional responsibility.
