Headteacher’s Values Award Winner
The Headteacher’s Values Award was presented to Kaitlyn Howells, in Year 7.
Kaitlyn was nominated by Mrs Roberts, who wrote: “I would like to nominate Kaitlyn Howells in 7WPA for the Headteacher’s Value Award. Kaitlyn joined Richmond School from Bedale, just after Easter, and arrived having not done any German before. She was not at all phased by this and just got on with the lessons. Kaitlyn very quickly picked up what we were studying in German and has contributed consistently and positively to every lesson since her arrival.
“This week, Kaitlyn has been my only student in German due to the majority of 7WPA students needing to self-isolate. This will have been the case in several of her lessons. She has, once again, taken it completely in her stride, demonstrating that she really is the epitome of resilience. We have whizzed back to basics, which she missed due to joining later in the year (and she has finally been able to encounter and enjoy (!) my infamous German number singing). Needless to say, despite being in a one-on-one situation, which some people may find a little daunting, Kaitlyn has shown great maturity. She has fully embraced this time and has yet again demonstrated many of the school’s values – Excellence, Resilience, Independence and Respect. Kaitlyn’s focus is excellent and her drive is to be admired. For all of these reasons, I believe Kaitlyn to be a very worthy contender for this week’s Headteacher’s Value Award.”
