Junior Leadership Team

At Leasowes Primary School, we believe that every child should have a voice. Each year a Junior Leadership Team (JLT) is formed through an rigorous application and interview process. Our JLT (usually) includes 2 children from each year group who then meet regularly to discuss matters relating to the whole school. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our JLT for the academic year comprises of only Year 6 children to avoid mixed bubbles. 

So that all children's voices and opinions are heard, we invite parents and students to contact the JLT via the email address below. We will endeavour to respond within a fortnight and will also share any necessary responses on this page.
