At Malvern School, we believe in nurturing the leadership potential of our students and giving them a voice in shaping our school community. Our Junior Leadership Team (JLT) is a key component of this commitment. The JLT consists of a pupil representative from each class, spanning from Year 2 to Year 6. This team plays a vital role in shaping the student voice within the school.
Our Junior Leadership Team is structured with elected members who ensure its smooth operation:
Chair: The Chair of the JLT leads meetings and ensures that discussions are productive and focused on the best interests of the student body.
Vice Chair: The Vice Chair assists the Chair in their responsibilities and steps in when needed to facilitate meetings and represent the JLT.
Secretaries: The Secretaries are responsible for preparing meeting agendas and recording meeting minutes. They help document important discussions and decisions made during JLT meetings.
Class Representatives: Class representatives are the backbone of the JLT. They are responsible for speaking to children in their classes, collecting important messages, ideas, and feedback, and reporting them back to the JLT. This vital role ensures that student perspectives are shared and acted upon, promoting a stronger sense of community and collaboration.
Developing Leadership Skills and Civic Engagement
Through the Junior Leadership Team, students at Malvern School further develop their leadership skills and gain a deeper understanding of how to influence positive change within our school. They also gain experience in parliamentary procedures, fostering essential skills such as public speaking, teamwork, and problem-solving.
At Malvern School, we believe that empowering students to be active participants in their school community not only enhances their educational experience but also prepares them for a future as responsible and engaged citizens. Our Junior Leadership Team is an embodiment of these principles, and we are proud of the contributions they make to our school.
