Junior Leadership Team

 

 "Start children off on the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it." Proverbs 22:6

At Barrow URC Primary School, the Junior Leadership Team (JLT) plays a pivotal role in fostering a culture of inclusivity and empowering our children to become effective leaders in line with our Christian vision. Recognising the significance of listening to the voices of our children, the JLT provides a platform for them to actively contribute to the school's development, embracing the values of compassion, responsibility, and respect. During the autumn term, each team within the JLT collaboratively set specific targets to work on, ensuring that our Christian principles guide their endeavours. This initiative not only cultivates a sense of responsibility and teamwork but also empowers the children to be active contributors to the realisation of our Christian vision, making their perspectives integral to the continuous improvement of our school community. Please find below a progress reports highlighting the positive strides made by our young leaders

 

Head boy and girl/ House Captains

Autumn Project - Review and write a child friendly anti-bullying policy

This autumn term, alongside our Happiness Heroes we successfully accomplished our goal of creating a child-friendly anti-bullying initiative. Collaborating with parents, governors, and the Headteacher, we opted for a creative approach, choosing to produce a short film instead of a traditional policy. Recognising that not all children are confident readers, we aimed to deliver our message in a more engaging and accessible manner. Inspired by TikTok, we added a song at the end.

Eco Warriors

Autumn Project – Reduce electricity use in school

The Eco Warriors have worked hard to reduce electricity wastage in school. They led an assembly to make other children aware of the cost of electricity and since then, the Eco Warriors have been monitoring light and computer usage and have been turning off lights that have been left on. They have created posters for around school to spread awareness.

Creative Champions

Autumn project: To start an Art after school club

The Creative Champions had their first meeting and were asked to do some Pupil Voice research. This involved chatting with their class to find out what they think about Art in Barrow and to note down any ideas. One idea was for an Art Club to start again for KS1 and KS2. Two art clubs have been planned. Mrs Cox is leading the KS1 club and we have a local artist coming into Barrow for Spring 2.
