Pupil Responsibility

Here at Towngate Primary Academy, we strive to ensure that pupils have the opportunity to undertake positions of trust and responsibility, as we believe that children understand values by seeing them in action from others. It is our firm belief that all pupils have the potential to become young leaders and we work hard to foster that potential through exposing pupils to these roles throughout their time at Towngate Primary Academy.

Academy Prefects

Our academy prefects are assigned to a class to support all pupils to live and breathe our core four values. Our Pupil Leadership team play a pivotal role in developing our school through undertaking regular pupil voice and feeding back to school leaders; this ensures that our children feel heard and valued. Our Pupil Leaders also offer tours around the academy for guests and visitors, and develop their confidence in public speaking through leading pupil and parent assemblies.

Pupils' views on our Academy Leaders:

The Year 6 roles and responsibilities make the school feel friendly – they try to help me at playtime and at lunch.

Year 3 Pupil

At playtime I play with skipping ropes and play hop scotch. I like to play make believe games and sometimes the buddies and teachers help.

Year 1 Pupil

I like our school – it’s really good and is very safe. Buddies are a really good idea and there are lots of caring teachers in our school. The behaviour in our school is getting better and better!
