Behaviour & Safety

Our Learning Mentor is Mrs Emma Johnson.
Our Attendance and Behaviour Officer is Miss Amy Chapman.

All pupils within the academy are expected to behave positively and appropriately to contribute to the culture in place at Towngate Primary Academy. It is our belief that both staff and pupils have the right to work in an environment that is safe, calm, peaceful and fair. It is the role of school leaders, teachers, support staff, non-teaching staff and pupils to work together to achieve this goal through a consistent and transparent culture.

At Towngate Primary Academy, we follow three key principles:

  1. Be Ready
  2. Be Respectful
  3. Be Safe

We expect our pupils to be ready to learn, ready to collaborate and ready to play.

We encourage our pupils to be respectful of themselves, respectful of other people in our school and wider community and respectful of our equipment and our school.

Our children are reminded to make the right choices to keep everybody – including themselves – safe.

Celebrating Success

To sustain high expectations of behaviour across the academy, positive behaviour is acknowledged and rewarded in classrooms, during recreational time and within the wider school.

Preventing Bullying

At Towngate, it is imperative to all staff and those within our academy community that all pupils feel welcome, valued and respected by all within our academy. We work hard throughout the academic year to ensure that we share this message and support our pupils in making the right choices and develop consideration and compassion for others. We implement the teaching of our core values within our values based curriculum and encourage our class teachers to consider how our curriculum will ensure pupils are provided the opportunity to discuss and explore protected characteristics and have a safe space to discuss similarities and differences between ourselves, our families and our interests.
