School Council

School Council

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 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 are elected from a number of nominees. This year, the children in school were provided with a voting card detailing the names of three nominees; they could then vote for the candidate that they wished to represent their class.  Once the Council is elected, they vote for their Chair, Vice Chair and Secretary. All School Councillors wear a distinctive school council badge and the team is facilitated by Mrs Wynne and Miss Kilbride.

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

The Accord Multi Academy Trust is an educational charity established in September 2016 that is currently made up of four academies who were the founding members of the Trust. In September 2016 Horbury Academy and Ossett Academy & Sixth Form College came together, moving away from their stand-alone Trust status and were joined in December 2016 by Horbury Primary Academy and Middlestown Primary Academy.

The overarching vision for the Trust is to work in one ‘Accord – celebrating the differences of each academy through strong collaboration in order to inspire all members of our learning community to be the best that they can be.
