Academy Council

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!


Our class School Councillor representatives for 2020-2021 are:

Year 6 - Phoebe

Year 5/6 - Lois

Year 5 - Aila

Year 4 - Jack

Year 3/4 - Eva

Year 3 - Krystal

Year 2 - Seth

Year 1 - Lexie

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 Aims

  • To continue holding monthly council surgeries, listening to our peers and taking their ideas, thoughts and concerns about the school to the school leadership team.
  • To finish the 'buddy bench' for the KS1 and 2 playground.
  • To create and lead the whole school Easter and Harvest Service Assembly.
  • To audit the playground equipment purchased by last year's School Council.
  • To continue collecting dry foods for the local food bank.


Our impact last academic year: 

  • Lead the whole school Harvest Festival and Easter Assembly
  • Supported in leading the Anti-Bullying Week within the Academy.
  • Held our first 'Race for Life' event in which we raised over £4000!

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.
