​If so, there is a Neighbourhood Plan Public Meeting to be held at 7.30pm on Monday 22nd September at Roche Victory Hall. The Parish Council have agreed to create a Neighbourhood Plan to help control development within the village.  The plan can help decide how and where new homes are built, what to protect and preserve, ways to tackle traffic and where improvements are needed. Neighbourhood Plans become Council planning policy, so have your say!


​Look out for your child's targets in the back of their reading records from next week.

The targets will be focused around a specific area of maths and a specific area of Spelling Punctuation and Grammar. We would like you to sign your child's targets so that we know that you are aware of what they are working on this half term. We would love you to try and help your child with their targets throughout the year. Please ask your class teacher if you need any help with this. You are always welcome to come in to school to ask your class teacher about your child's progress.


School is buzzing with extra-curricular clubs this half term! There are 16 clubs on offer to the 180 children in key stages 1 and 2 and at last count 120 of those 180 children are attending at least one club.

As always, the majority of the clubs are provided by staff in their own time and I am pleased to say that clubs are all still offered at no charge. We use a proportion of the money that school receives as Pupil Premium Grant to pay for additional coaches and to purchase resources.

We change some of the clubs offered each term. If you have any good ideas for activities that you would like us to consider offering then please don't hesitate to let us know.


As you may be aware, all key stage 1 children are now entitled to a free school meal. We tried to gain an idea of the uptake of these school meals by canvasing parents before the summer but we weren't able to gain a complete picture. It is fair to say that the uptake of meals has been remarkable! In this second week of term last year the kitchen served 211 meals, this week they will serve 507.

This has caused some logistical headaches. Lizzie and her staff are committed to maintaining the level of quality and service that have made school meals so popular. We realise that some of the older children are having to wait considerably longer to get their meal and we are working to try and find ways of speeding up the system.

We would be very grateful if you could bear with us while we make the necessary adjustments and improvements to the lunch time arrangements.   


We have a vacancy at school for the above position.

The main purpose of this role is to assist and supervise individuals and groups of pupils during the lunch break, encouraging responsible and appropriate behaviour, activities and play ensuring the safety of pupils. Hours of work will be 11.45-1.15 Monday-Friday. (7.5 hours per week pro rata)

Please download and complete an application form via Cornwall Council's website and email to or hand to Chrissie in the office.

The closing date for applications is midday on Friday 19th September, successful candidates need to be available for interview on Friday 26th September.


Karate Club runs every Wednesday at Roche, 4-5 and 5-6, and its £3 a session. We run sessions for up to 12 years of age at these sessions.
The other clubs are St Dennis on a Tuesday, St Columb Minor on a Monday and Newquay on a Thursday.
