What will the JLT do?

The JLT does a number of things:
The JLT meets - with a teacher present - to discuss and sort out any issues. This includes improving learning, identifying any barriers to learning and making sure we are a Rights respecting school.

Members of the JLT will be responsible for carrying out the ideas that have been agreed.


What will a good JLT look like?

A good JLT is one that represents the views of all students and gets things done. These are some things that will make our JLT successful and effective:


  • Regular meetings
  • A team that is not too big
  • Class councils that meet regularly led by their member of the JLT – once a fortnight on Thursday mornings
  • Good communication between representatives and their class
