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 primary school.

This year, our head boy, head girl and deputies have had an important role in holding our virtual celebration assembly each week; an opportunity for each class to share their learning and experiences from throughout the week and the class teacher to share who they have selected for their ‘Star of the Week’ award.

Academy Leadership Team:
At Towngate, we work hard to develop pupils in our academy to become future leaders. We understand the importance in believing in individuals who can help to shape our school for the better. Each year, we recruit a team of Academy Councillors; a Head Boy and Girl; Deputy Head Boy and Deputy Head Girl; Prefects and Academy Buddies. The roles of these children are to work with our staff and pupils to make our school the best it can be!

As school councillors, our overall aim is to make a postive impact within our school and for all the children at Towngate Primary Academy. We work closely with Mrs Schofield and Mrs Drury and attend regular council meetings and discuss our aims for the upcoming year, our fundraising and charity goals and share the views and suggestions of the pupils in our school.
Our impact last academic year:
We want to make our school the best place it can possibly be, so please support the school council by checking for updates on our School Council display and offering any suggestions to your class representatives.
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!Year 6 Pupil
