How to celebrate after the award

Achieving the award is a great opportunity to celebrate and you will receive a certificate in recognition.

We can supply you with a personalised press release to send to your local media. You could send this to local and regional newspapers, TV and radio stations and local council newsletters. News of the award should go onto your school's website. If you would like to display an REQM award ribbon on your website see the bottom of this page for further information.

You might also want to hold a celebration event for parents, feeder schools, governors and the local community. This is what some schools have organised:

  • A celebration assembly
  • An RE focus day
  • Visits to their feeder schools
  • An Open Day for RE
  • Presentation to the governing body
  • Invitation to parents to watch lessons
