Head Boy and Girl
Firstly, all of Year 6 participated to vote for the best Head Boy and Girl. This year the school decided to share the opportunity to have this role by having a Head Boy and Girl each term. Lennie and Poppy have this job for the first term (autumn term.)
This year so far they have presented the celebration/achievement awards and picked out the good manners tokens. Then, they present the children with their awards. They are very grateful to be Head Boy and Girl this term.
Meet our School Council for 2018/19
The School Council at Horbury Primary Academy is a team of dedicated, organised and proud children.
The members of the council play a crucial part in the development of our school and each member takes their role very seriously. As a result of their hard work, they have organised and implemented many positive changes within the school.
The Selection of the School Council happens at the beginning of each School year. One child from each class in years 2, 3, 4, 5 and 2 children from year 6 are elected from a range of nominees. Once the Council is elected, they vote for their Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary. All School Councillors wear a distinctive purple badge and the team is facilitated by Mrs Norfolk.
From Buddy Bench monitors to advocates of Anti-bullying, we are role-models who truly represent the voice of the pupils at Horbury Primary Academy, demonstrating RESPECT, EFFORT and SAFETY.
- We develop our school and ourselves by discussing ideas and making decisions, whilst respecting the views of everyone
- We work together, making every effort to ensure our School is the best school possible
- We aim to make pupils feel included, happy and safe
We have achieved so much and feel proud to represent the pupil voice for HPA...

We are supporting World Kindness Day on Tuesday 13th November by visiting a local Residential Home and delivering messages to staff and residents from the pupils of HPA.
Our next fundraiser in school will be Children in Need on Friday 16th November. We are inviting pupils to come to school in non uniform and make donations to support this worthy cause.

Purple 4 Polio project
P-F-P: With everyone’s help and support, the school managed to raise an incredible £175.00 towards the chosen cause, purple for polio! The school council would like to give their thanks to everyone who took part in this life changing event ( for those children who gone through some very tough times).
We are raising awareness of the Rotary Club and their efforts to eradicate polio by supporting the ‘Rotary Crocus Campaign’.
We are planning to have a crocus planting afternoon on Wednesday 8th November. This will entail us selling crocus bulbs for £1 for the children to plant in our school bed the initials ‘HPA’. If the children would like to take part they need to bring in £1 on the morning of the 8th and give it to their class teacher.
The School Council will be collecting these children from their classes in the afternoon and taking them to the planting bed.
We are looking forward to keeping you updated on the progress of our project and will post pictures and comments in our School Council Blog. WATCH OUT FOR UPDATES SOON ...
