Junior Leadership Council

Junior Leadership Council

We have a thriving Junior Leadership Team that comprises many different roles and responsibilities. Every class from Year 1 upwards has representation on the various teams and we actively encourage all the children to be part of at least one team whilst they are in school.

Various members of staff oversee the teams and they are co-ordinated by Mrs Ellison. The teams meet at fixed points during a Half Term. They discuss how they can support our Weetwood community and bring forward ideas and suggestions from their classes that can further develop the school. Teachers ensure that time is allowed to feedback from the last meeting and to take to the Junior Leadership Council any issues of concern from the pupils in the class.

  • Junior Leadership Team
