Delamere C of E Academy’s

Art's 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. After writing a letter of application applications are  reviewed and interviewed 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 our teaching team 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. Our Arts Council help plan and deliver art activities across the full school.
