Art council

Delamere C of E Academy’s

Arts Council 2020 - 2021

 

A brief history:

In September 2019, we started our very first pupil led Arts Council, here at Delamere Academy. 

Each year, children in Year 6 are asked to submit their interest to be part of the council, by writing a letter of application. Applications are then reviewed by the wider teaching team.

Through being part of the arts council, children have the opportunity to meet with teaching staff to discuss the delivery of arts within the academy.  

We have regular meetings where we discuss a range of ideas. All of these are logged within our meeting minutes book and shared with relevant members of staff. 

These children will work alongside Miss Wild to improve the arts within our school.

Over the course of the year, the Arts Council will be helping Miss Wild and the wider teaching team as we work towards achieving the Platinum Artsmark Status at Delamere C of E Academy.

‘Artsmark can help unlock the potential of children and young people, help to develop character and talent, and increase their knowledge and understanding’ (Artsmark, 2015).

As an academy, we are passionate about embedding the arts within our creative curriculum, through art, dance, drama and music. Our aim in working towards the Artsmark is to further enrich the amazing provision that is already on offer at Delamere Academy.

We strongly believe that this process should be driven by the children. Children from across the school will work with our Arts Leader to embed and promote the arts throughout the wider school community.

 

 

 

Young Carers

 

 

 

We are delighted to inform you that our school is currently working with Carers Trust 4all to raise awareness and support Young Carers within Cheshire West and Chester. Carers Trust 4all are the commissioned service in Cheshire West and Chester to support Young Carers.

 

 

Who are Young Carers?

 A young carer is a young person aged between 6-18 who care for a family member such as mum, dad, brother, sister or grandparents who suffer with a physical disability, poor ill health, learning disability, mental health, or substance and alcohol misuse.

 

What do Young Carers do?

 Young Carers take on a number of tasks for the person they care for.

  • Practical tasks, such as cleaning, cooking, shopping, general upkeep of the housework.

  • Personal care, such as helping with toileting, washing, showering/bathing, and getting dressed.

  • Emotional support, such as listening and being someone to offload to.

  • Administering or helping someone to remember to take their medication.

  • Financial support, such as paying bills, helping manage money ect.

  • Sibling Care

  • Communication support such as sign language, interpreting letters.

     

Impacts of being young carer

  • Lower grades than their peers if young carers miss time in school

  • Poor confidence and self esteem

  • Emotional impacts, worry and stress

  • Stigma of being a young carer may result in bullying

  • Missed opportunities, not being able to do things other children are doing

  • Isolation

 

What we are doing to support young carers

  • We have had a special assembly to help identify any young carers and to reduce the stigma

  • Regular drop In sessions where young carers can come and chat about their caring role

  • Staff members have received young carer awareness training which helps better support young carers in our school

  • We are currently working on gaining a Young Carers in School Award which pledges us to support young carers.

LOTC

Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) at Delamere Academy... 

At Delamere Academy we are committed to providing the best education possible for children, allowing children to fly and develop their personalities as well as their academic achievements. Substantial evidence indicates that time spent outside the classroom that is "properly conceived, adequately planned, well taught and effectively followed up, offers learners opportunities to develop their knowledge and skills in ways that add value to their everyday experiences in the classroom" , this demonstrates the need for all children to have access to time outside the classroom. 

Our vision/Mission statement... 

We as a school understand the importance of Learning Outside the Classroom (LOtC) and the opportunities it provides for all pupils. We are committed to ensuring these LOtC opportunities are progressive and frequent, enabling children to develop in a range of curriculum areas. Learning Outside the Classroom is embedded within school life and is valued by all staff, it is believed to be an essential element for providing a broad and balanced curriculum.

Examples of LOtC... 

 

From year two each class takes part in an over night residential and each class takes part in numerous trips and visits over the school year. These are fantastic examples of off-site LOtC opportunities, but teaching staff also plan a range of engaging and frequent LOtC opportunities in school that match the children's needs and allow for progression within subjects. 

 

LOtC at home... 

We're committed to involving parents in every aspect of school life, providing your child with LOtC opportunities at home is beneficial for their development at home and a special way of spending family time. The National Trust compiled a list of "50 Things to do before you're 11 and 3/4" to encourage families and children to spend quality time in the outdoors. Please see the PDF below for the list of activities for ideas and inspiration for LOtC at home. 

Delamere Forest is a fantastic local resources for outdoor actvities, follow the link below to their forest explorer website for up coming events and activities.
