School Council

Where pupils shape policies

Roche pupils take forward ideas on behalf of other pupils and contribute to the School Evaluation and Development Plan with the head teacher and senior management.

Across all years, pupils elect one person from their class to represent them at School Council. Children are given a topic or area to discuss at weekly meetings relating to school life. The question is then taken back to each class and class reps relay all contributions at the next meeting. Topics include improvements to the playground, conflict resolution, feedback on 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 children’s views are voiced and acted upon in a democratic way. We seek to further explore issues raised by the children themselves as well as by the 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.
