Junior Leadership

Gallions Primary Junior Leadership Team

What is a Junior Leadership Team?

Our Junior Leadership Team (JLT) is a group of students from year 6 who are elected to represent the views of all pupils, be excellent role models and work together to improve our school.  We follow a democratic process to elect the Leaders.  If pupils wish to become a Junior Leader, they must take part in an election process, which includes making speeches and supporting in classrooms.

What do the Junior Leadership Team do?

The Junior Leadership Team meet weekly with senior members of staff and discuss issues that are important to the children.  They are also involved in gaining pupil voice, completing learning walks and looking through books.  They provide a unique insight into what is working well in the school and ways that adults can improve the provision at Gallions for the children.

The Junior Leadership Team meet with the governing body regularly to share their work with them.  They also have an input into the monitoring of the impact of the changes and improvements across the school.

The pupils talk confidently about the role in setting the class behaviour expectations and are clear about the sanctions and rewards, understand the difference between right and wrong and the importance of fairness.

Who are the Junior Leadership Team?

At Gallions, we have six pupils that form our Junior Leadership Team. They would like to introduce themselves:

Head Girl

My name is Leila and I am proud to be the Head Girl for Gallions Primary School. Being part of the JLT (Junior Leadership Team) is a dream come true. Being Head Girl means a lot to me, as I had wanted this role to be a role model to my siblings and the wider school. Who would have thought little old me would rise to be the most important girl in this school!? 

I am a proud member of the school Choir and Senior Orchestra; Gallions has given me lots of opportunities and encouraged my love of reading.

Head Boy

Hi, I’m Eesa. I am 10 years old and I was chosen to become Head Boy! I enjoy coding, scouts and trying new foods. I’ve attended Gallions Primary School since Nursery and whilst attending I have been a member of the School Council, I have assisted as a Phonics Tutor for Early Years and was also a Librarian. I’ve also thoroughly enjoyed attending many clubs throughout the years. I’m a multi- skilled individual; I do many extracurricular activities out of school such as learning Arabic, coding in python and developing apps and I’m also a scout. 

I’m really excited to be Head Boy and I look forward to working alongside my amazing friends who are also part of the Junior Leadership Team to be the voice of my peers and help make the school a better place and advocate for us all.

House Captain Vega

Hello, my name is Kyrah-Ellyse and I am the House Captain for Vega. I am happy and proud to be a part of JLT (the Junior Leadership Team). I hope that the pupils in my House team feel they can come to me for help or information. In my role, I am especially looking forward to supporting the school with events such as Open Days and Concerts. I am proud to be part of Gallions; this school has helped me develop my strengths in music and performing arts.

House Captain Capella

Hello, my name is Liam and I am the House Captain for Capella. Being part of the JLT 

(Junior Leadership Team), I have to be a role-model and encourage others to follow my actions. I like to help the school however I can and I am proud to be a part of Gallions. At this school, I have had the opportunity to follow my interests in sport and in chess: I am now a Grandmaster!

I think this role will help me with my confidence going into secondary school. I am proud that I took this role and I hope it can grow my confidence going into future years.

House Captain Spica

Hello, my name is Hanna and I am the House Captain of Spica. The colour of my house is purple. I applied for this job because I think it will boost my confidence when I go into Year 7.   I know that this school is great since I have been here from Nursery to Year 6 – 8 years! I am 10 years old and I am Polish. My favourite thing about school is that you can learn creative subjects such as art. I also like that you can apply for different jobs like this one. In the future I would like to be a writer or designer; Gallions has really helped me to develop my writing skills and designing skills in DT,  Art and English 🙂

House Captain Rigel

Hello, I am Avi and I am proud to be the House Captain for Rigel. Being in the Junior Leadership Team is great! As a House Captain, I get to learn all the names of the children in my house and get to converse with more teachers and people working in our school. I chose to enrol myself in the JLT elections to boost my leadership qualities and be more confident transitioning into secondary school. I think being in the Junior Leadership Team will help me in the future. Gallions has enabled me to follow my strengths and passions; I am a proud cello player and member of Bass Attack and Senior Orchestra and I have supported Gallions in many chess tournaments as a Grandmaster!
