Junior Governors

What are the Junior Governors?

Our Junior Governors are a group of pupils who were elected to represent the views of all pupils and work together to improve our school.  We follow a democratic process to elect the Junior Governors.  If they wish  to become a Junior Governor the pupils must complete a short application form expressing why they feel they will be a member of the team. They then present their views to their class and a secret vote takes place.

Who are the Junior Governors?

At Alexander McLeod Primary School we have 1 representative from each Key Stage 2 class that form the Junior Governors. In the Junior Governors there is a Junior Chair of Governors, a vice chair and a secretary.

What do the Junior Governors do?

The Junior Governors meet the Headteacher once every two weeks and discuss issues that are important to the children.  They have an agenda which they create, the secretary of the Junior Governors takes the minutes and another chairs the meeting.

The Junior Governors meet with the governing body regularly to share their work with them.

They also have a higher level of input into the monitoring of the impact of the changes and improvements across the school and they contribute to the school self evaluation document (SEF).

The pupils talk confidently about the role in setting the class behaviour expectations and are clear about the sanctions and rewards, understand the difference between right and wrong and the importance of fairness.

How can you become a member of the Junior Governors?

Junior Governors must model our School Values and our Golden Rules at all times.
