The Ribblesdale Diploma

The Enrichment programme continues to improve and expand in variety offering our pupils an outstanding programme of activities.

The Ribblesdale Award and Diploma helps pupils build a portfolio of credits and points from the Enrichment Programme, Intervention and Employability Skills Diploma.

You will continue to make your choices and complete six modules annually in Years 7-10 which include four from the enrichment model and two PSHE/Citizenship units.

Every module you successfully complete your teacher or instructor will award you points using set criteria and point thresholds.

Each year, upon successful completion of six modules, you will receive an annual award which will become your final Ribblesdale Diploma at either Bronze, Silver or Gold.

The Ribblesdale Diploma will also allow you to be credited for activities, clubs and organisations you may participate in outside of school. Additional credits can be secured from your outside interests, which would need to be validated. Each additional credit will earn a bonus of 10 points.

The final Ribblesdale Diploma will be based on an accumulation of points awarded throughout your time at Ribblesdale.

Look through the information carefully about The Ribblesdale Diploma and choices for 2018-2019 and complete the Microsoft office form.  Please see the link for your year group.
