JLT and School Council 2020-2021

What is the School Council and JLT?

The School Council is an ideal opportunity for pupils to get more involved in the way the school is run. The School Council benefits the whole school, pupils and teachers, because it provides opportunities for pupils to communicate their feelings as well as influence decisions that are made.

Councillors develop skills such as confidence, communication and negotiation. It is the responsibility of each councillor to ensure that they express both their own views and the views of all the other pupils they represent. Members of the Council take part in discussions and votes and also feedback any relevant information to their class. At times they are requested to ask their class for ideas or take class votes relating to discussions by the Council.


Alongside our School Council we also have our Earlsdon Junior Leadership Team. The JLT is an ideal opportunity for more children to have a voice and play an integral role of the running and organisation of the school. The children have the opportunity to apply for the role that they feel best suits them, and the school. It is aimed for Year 5 and 6 children.


As well as our JLT and our School Council, Earlsdon Primary is happy to announce that this year we are also part of the Coventry Young Ambassador Programme, which means a handful of our specially trained pupils are able to represent our city and school at a range of cultural and sporting events. 




JLT and School Council 2019-2020

World Down Syndrome Day and World Autism Awareness Week

The School Council have been reminding children to wear odd socks on Friday 20th March for World Down Syndrome Day, in addition to this assemblies will be focused around raising awareness. Alongside this, the office will be selling wristbands for Autism Awareness and the School Council will be selling these around school, assemblies will also focus on raising awareness. 

Preloved book sale

Well done to all of the parents and children at Earlsdon Primary School for raising £177 that we will be donating to our local community library later in the month. The School Council helped organise and group the books, helped the younger children select books and also organised payment, change and most importantly counting the final total!

JLT update

It’s a very exciting time for Year 5 and 6 at the moment as the JLT are reapplying for their posts and job roles. The children will be starting their new roles on Monday 20th January. The Digital Leaders will be helping in assemblies and taking care of the electronic equipment. The Playground and Early Years Leaders will be supporting the children on the playground and playing with them as well as modelling correct behaviour choices and games. The School Leaders will be helping the office staff with letters, jobs and photocopying and our Sports Leaders will be helping with the football rota, PE equipment and will be helping with games on the playground. The JLT are very proud and will be wearing their new lanyards around school. 

Year 6 at Festive Fayre

Our amazing Year 6 had a table at the Festive Fayre this year with an aim to raise some money for a robot. The children wanted to raise enough money to put towards a robot for our school coding club. The children raised almost £100 and our PTA have kindly doubled it.  

Children in Need 2019

The School Council have worked very hard over the last few weeks collecting in entries for their Pudsey competition, selling items outside of school to their peers, learning songs and getting their assembly ready to share to both KS1 and KS2. They were pleased to choose a winner for the giant Pudsey and raise lots of money for Children In Need. A huge thank you to all of the children at Earlsdon School who entered the competition, dressed up for the day, donated some money and embraced our Pudsey day - we couldn’t do it without you! As a school we raised a whopping £643.18! 

Anti-bullying week 2019

This year the School Council have presented their Anti-Bullying campaign to both KS1 and KS2. They spoke about the importance of change and how making a change to your own behaviour can impact and change how others feel. In addition, the children at Earlsdon School have been taking part in lots of circle times and discussions around being unique and different. Mr Hook has also been teaching a variety of songs about change to both KS1 and KS2. On Tuesday 12th of November we would like to encourage the children at school to wear odd socks, which is part of the Anti-Bullying campaign. 


This year the children and parents at Earlsdon School collaborated together to make poppies from reusable and recyclable materials. With the donation of a bike frame from Albany Cycles and with the support of a talented parent helper, the waterproof poppies were assembled together to make a fabulous wreath. The children in KS1 will take the wreath with them to War Memorial Park on Monday 11th November to place it at the cenotaph. As poppies can be purchased from the school office and the money donated goes to the British Legion, parents welcomed the opportunity to still contribute to the fund. 

Coventry Young Ambassadors
