Here at Towngate, we operate an open door poilcy. Besides parent evenings, if you have any worries or concerns, please do come and see us because we can help and we are always pleased to see you. However, we do request that unless it is absolutely essential, teachers are seen at the end rather than the start of the Academy day to avoid distruption to lessons.
Each class has a ‘Meet the Teacher’ meeting at the beginning of each academic year to outline:
Academy meals are served on the premises served from our Academy kitchen. The meals are served in the Dining Room on a cafeteria basis which allows some choice. Special dietary requirements e.g. due to cultural, religious or medical needs can be catered for by special arrangement.
In our Academy, we aim to provide, for all partners:
We believe that children should feel a sense of ‘belonging’ to our Academy and that they should wear their uniform with pride. We also think that children should feel equal, and an Academy uniform contributes to this. Having a uniform also clearly states what the governors, staff and parents feel to be appropriate clothing for the Academy.
It also helps to clearly identify pupils when travelling to or from the Academy on Academy visits – a positive safety factor. It is an expectation that all children wear the official Academy logo jumper/cardigan and a requirement when representing the Academy on official visits. Our Academy uniform is detailed in our parent handbook below.
