St Dominic Savio Catholic Primary School ‘Serve the Lord with Joy’

The Junior Leadership Team

Why have a Junior Leadership Team?

Article 12 of the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNCRC) says that children and young people should have a say in decisions that affect their lives. Our Junior Leadership Team provides a meaningful way in which pupils can voice their opinions and have their views taken into account in decisions which impact upon them. 

St Dominic Savio has a Junior Leadership Team which ensures pupils’ voices are heard in the running of the school. 


We have four key areas:


  • Catholic Life of the School
  • Sustainability (and the Eco Council)
  • Inclusion and Diversity
  • Curriculum and Healthy Lifestyles


Our belief is that the pupils at our school are the heart of our school community and therefore, we value their thoughts, ideas and opinions. Our Junior Leadership Team is one way of ensuring the voice of the children is heard and used effectively in order to have a positive impact for the whole school and its future developments. Our links with staff, parents, pupils, the governors and community enable us to participate in decisions about teaching, learning, fundraising and the success of our school.


    Examples of ideas that the Junior Leadership Team has made happen include:

    • Fundraising for charity
    • Development of prayer opportunities across the school
    • Researching ideas for lunch time and break time and purchasing new equipment
    • Visits from key sports people to share their stories and inspire us for the future
