School Council

IMG_4568 RThe Roche School Council is a group of pupils elected by their peers to discuss opinions and ideas with the head teacher and senior management team. They take forward projects on behalf of other pupils and contribute to the School Evaluation and Development Plan.

The School Council is attended by one representative from each class across all year groups. Children are given a topic or area to discuss at the weekly meetings, relating to school life. The question is then taken back to each class and class reps feed back all contributions at the next meeting. Topics include improvements to the playground, conflict resolution, feedback regarding homework and enjoyment of lessons.

The children recently asked for the playground wall to be painted. A consultation was carried out to ask children about the types of pictures they would like to have and a local artist used these to create a design. The artwork has been enjoyed by all children across the school and has inspired imaginative play during break times.

The School Council also requested for Late Class to be held in the playground, which has now been made possible throughout the week.

The Council continues to provide a forum where the views of all the children can be voiced and acted upon in a democratic way. We seek to further explore the issues raised by the children themselves as well as by staff.

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.
