Junior Leaders



At Dell, we believe in a pupil led culture where children take on key leadership roles and get their voice heard. We whole-heartedly value the work of our pupil leaders, moulding leaders of the future, ready for work, ready for the world. We strive to craft confident and articulate leaders who can share their views to any audience and apply their leadership skills to real life situations. From this, we have embedded Junior Leadership Teams of children that act as a link between their peers, staff, SLT and our Governors. The intent is to offer children the opportunities to develop our school and local community, so that it continues to grow, thrive and succeed. 


Life at Dell revolves around: 

Respect - mutual and absolute for all 

Passion - we are energetically committed   

Collaboration – better together 

Integrity - do the right thing, even when no one is watching 

Ambition - driven and determined to achieve

Applying for a leadership role

The specific Leadership Roles will be advertised to the appropriate year group/s.  Leadership Role expectations will be shared so that all children fully understand what is on offer to them and what they would be expected to commit too if they applied and were chosen to take on the Leadership Role.

Children who are interested in making an application are encouraged to read and digest the information relating to the positions before deciding which to apply for, and, in light of this all children applying for one of the advertised positions should complete a Pupil Leadership Application Form and hand it in to the appropriate adult leading the chosen Pupil Leadership Team.  
The appointment process will vary dependant on the Leadership Role and number of pupil applications received.  The Adult Team Leaders will usually manage the selection process and fill all the vacant Pupil Leadership positions, in consultation with all pupils. This may be via a voting system.   Pupil selection could be done directly from using the information within the application forms or through an additional interview process, if deemed necessary.  All children are then informed about the outcome of their application.

All children who apply for a post should be prepared to:

  • Complete an application form
  • Be interviewed by the adult/s leading the appropriate Pupil Leadership Team
  • Speak in front of adults/peers to e.g. share views and experience


Please note, not all positions will require the children to do all of the above, but you must be prepared to be involved in one or more of the selection processes outlined if necessary.
