The Roche Approach

IMG_6827 zeynap copy 2

The Roche Approach is a whole-school initiative intended to develop a school culture based on kindness and respect for others. It is at the heart of all we do and informs the day-to-day running of the school, its long-term development, the recruitment process and the way we manage our school evaluation.

Whilst the aim of any educational establishment is the academic, creative and social development of its pupils, we believe that such progress is more sustainable, more powerful and more secure if it takes place within a culture which values inclusivity, mutual respect and the good self-esteem of all children – not just a minority.

Such an atmosphere is more likely to foster the key strengths of confidence, compassion, resilience and intelligence – key aspects of the learning experience and of lifelong value to all.

Ours is a dynamic and warm community in which children feel valued and respected and which enables them to flourish together.    It is hoped that when they move on to their secondary schools, they do so as happy, confident individuals – capable of leading by example and contributing increasingly to society as they mature.

STEM Week – Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths at The Roche School

The week commencing 3rd October will be STEM Week at The Roche School, based around the theme of Water. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, so the week will involve many exciting experiments, challenges and construction activities. On  Monday 3rd October, STEM Week will be kicked off by a special whole school assembly centred on the theme of ‘Water’, led by a special guest…Science Man. Throughout the day every class will have a workshop looking at the importance of water, uses of water and water experiments. On Tuesday 4th October we will be holding a whole school ‘Times Tables Challenge’, where every child will compete (with differentiated tables) to gain as many points for their house as possible. Good luck! On Thursday 6th October, The STEM team at school will lead an interactive assembly and award prizes won during the weeks’ challenges.
