Welcome to The Discovery Academy

Rob Kelsall

I am delighted to welcome you to The Discovery Academy, one of the most improved and fastest growing academy’s in the area, boasting a £21 million building; world class facilities and belonging to a forward looking Trust who have a number of successful local schools. Our strength lies in our high expectations; positive relationships and support for all of our students, and recruitment of only the best staff. In addition, we work tirelessly to develop the whole child by giving them experiences and opportunities to grow positive beliefs and values that will create kind, successful adults in the years to come.

Our resilience curriculum has received much attention as a model of good practice, where students build resilience, try new activities and develop positive mind sets through a curriculum which includes lessons as learning a language, playing an instrument and circus skills.

The Mindful March action calendar has daily suggestions to help you be more mindful and live in the present moment.

**See you there!**

Throughout the spring term, students at The Discovery Academy will explore and discuss contemporary influences on young people's body images and self-esteem in PSHE lessons.

This will include reflecting on body confidence, body talk, and the impact of society, the media, and social media on appearance ideals.

By engaging with these topics, we hope to help improve students' body image, self-esteem, and ensure they feel more confident participating in academic and social activities.
