At Darlinghurst Academy we have a group of Junior Governors who work hard to ensure the voices of all the children in school are heard. The Junior Governors are made from a group of students who have been democratically elected for the role by their classmates. We are happy to have extended the role to both KS2 and KS1 pupil this year to better represent the voice of all pupils.

- The Junior Governors’ main job is to represent the children in their class and ensure that all voices and opinions on matter in school are heard.
- To feedback to their classes on matters discussed at Junior Governor meetings.
- The Junior Governors are always involved in the interviewing of new staff at the school and have done a brilliant job of selecting candidates.
- Junior Governors are often called upon to represent out school at important events.

The Junior Governors meet regularly with Mrs Richards. The meetings often include special guests for the Junior Governors to feedback to.
