Our Pupil Voice
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 6 are elected from a range of nominees. The Head Boy and Girl from year 6 also play an integral role within the School Council. Once the Council is elected, they select a chair and vice chair. All School Councillors wear a distinctive purple badge and the team is facilitated by Mrs Norfolk and Mrs Clarke.
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...

Sock Competition update
Over the last few weeks we have been reminding people of how important anti-bullying week is. We have to say a big thank you to everyone who helped us.
We ran a competition involving designing your own sock. To decide the winner we had a vote for key KS1/UFS and KS2. It was a tough decision because everyone’s entry was absolutely fabulous.
We have chosen 2 winners and presented them with a certificate, a bag of art goodies, a hand made sock from their design (created by Mrs Sleight) and a key ring made from each design (created by the School Council).
The school council.
The key rings are on sale for 50p each at the fruit stall every morning break on our return to school!
Here is Erin with her winners certificate and prize.
Chloe and Megan present Myla-Faith with her certificate and prize.

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 ...
