Discovery Academy Council provides an opportunity for representatives from classes in the academy to meet and discuss important issues. Led by Mrs Alexander, the council is made up of 12 members elected by their respective classes following class hustings and a blind vote. Members have to demonstrate that they can meet the Academy Council job description and personal specification which can be found below.
The Academy Council meets regularly to work on ways in which the academy can be made even better for the children. Councillors are role models for our school community.
Academy Council Achievements (2021):
The Academy Council organised Red Nose Day events at Discovery in March. As well as asking their classmates to wear red on the day, each councillor organised lunchtime activities for their class which included craft activities and film sessions.
The Academy Council also created a PowerPoint of the co-operative learning strategies that we use at Discovery. This can be found below.
