Our Junior Leadership Team (JLT)

At Skerton St Luke’s we believe it is important to listen to our pupils and allow their voices to be heard. All pupils' views and opinions count!

Year 5 pupils can stand for election to become a member of JLT in the autumn term. The successful candidates join the existing 6 members who were elected in Year 5, and continue to represent the school in Year 6. Be the change you want to see is the motto we go by, to ensure that as young leaders we act responsibly as positive role-models.

Our current JLT members for 2019-2020 are:

Yr6: Liam, Dexter, Summer, Daisy- Mae, Nathan & Tom Y6.

Yr5:  Olivia, Lauren, Bobby, Krystal & Eva-Grace

This year JLT will run a number of events .....  keep your eye on our Facebook page or Parent APP for details.  

So far in 2019-20 JLT have organised:

Royal legion Poppy Appeal and raised £116.00

St John's Hospice Elf Run and raised £135.62

Children in Need and raised £260.56

How our JLT works

Our JLT is led and supported by Miss Butler, our Yr4 class teacher. We meet once a week to talk about issues that have been raised by the children, and discuss how we can make changes for ourselves, our school, and the wider community, to make where we learn and live a happier, safer place. Some great changes have taken place this year thanks to JLT. We have been instrumental in the following:

  • Litter picking around school
  • Children in Need fundraising
  • School disco to raise funds for the victims of Grenfell Tower
  • 'Stop it, Drop it, Read it' event to raise money for school

Mission this year:

  • Elf run to support St John’s Hospice
  • Cards for Kindness to bridge the gap between existing generations in our community
  • Big focus on recycling in the community, at school and at home.  
  • Letter to the council regarding derelict house next to school

Our JLT members will form sub teams to represent an area of learning within school to ensure we strive to meet standards in subject areas to continue to grow, learn and develop together.

Please look out for updates on our newsletter and of course right here.

How our JLT works


It’s a lovely community. We all feel like a part of St Luke’s family. My child loves her teachers and knows other members of staff. It’s lovely to walk into school and people know my child’s name and always say hello to her, even teachers from other classes or Mrs Armistead.


I know when I drop my kids off they are happy and safe and they both enjoy their time in school.


Thank you for not only teaching my daughter but also caring for her. She’s really happy at school and is making great progress in all areas of learning.


The staff have been so supportive of my child with Special Educational Needs. They are amazing and it makes me confident that my daughter is well looked after and if she has any problems they will help.

The Reception Open Day really showed the school in a good light. The Headteacher showed us round and knew all of the pupil’s names. All of the children we met were friendly and polite but more importantly they were all smiling whilst learning.

Teachers are very helpful, friendly and approachable
