At Riddlesden St Mary's, we have six core values that surround our Christian ethos, we encourage our children to recognise these throughout daily school life.
Our values are:
All members of the St Mary's family belong to a 'house'. There are 6 houses, each representing a core value. Throughout the year, children and adults are encouraged to gain house points for their team. They can earn house points by using their learning powers or by demonstrating any of our school values. The 'house points' are collated on a weekly basis and the results shared during celebration worship. At the end of each half term, the house with the most points will be rewarded with a non-uniform day where they can wear their house colour and hoodie with pride!
From September 2019, we have decided to link each of our core values to a famous person who has made a positive contribution in the world.
This half term, we are focussing on the value of Respect. In line with Black History Month, each year group will spend time looking into the life of a famous Black Historian who has made a positive difference in the world. Click on each famous person to find out more
