Swannington’s Junior Leadership Team – elected members and their role:
Each class is represented by Swannington’s Junior Leadership Team. Members are elected in September by their classmates. They take the views of their classmates to the meetings, sharing ideas and making suggestions for change, they also report decisions back to their class. Each year, the Junior Leadership Team members involve themselves in lots of other activities and areas of school life.
