This section is for the REQM in Wales.

The materials are available to download in either English or Welsh.

The REQM uses evidence to tell a big story. Levels are cumulative.

Once you have decided that you meet the criteria for one of the levels, download and complete the REQM application form and send it to the REQM administrator by emailing to register your application. An assessor will contact you to arrange a visit.

A key part of the evidence is what your learners say about RE. You need to survey the views of young people in your setting, using one of the learner questionnaires:

The assessor will spend time speaking to a range of pupils in school.

The assessor will also talk through the evidence with you and will discuss with a member of the senior leadership team the extent to which RE is supported in the school.

Use the criteria and exemplar evidence in the REQM school evidence form to help you to determine the award level you meet.

Criteria for Wales: English
Criteria for Wales: Welsh

The criteria are divided into five sections:

  • Learners and Learning
  • Teachers and Teaching
  • Curriculum
  • Subject Leadership
  • Continuing Professional Development (CPD)

We suggest that you highlight those criteria which you think you meet and give brief examples of how you meet them.

During the meeting, the assessor will make notes about how secure the evidence is. At the end of the visit, the assessor will usually be able to tell you the level you have achieved in the REQM. This will be confirmed by the REQM Administrator who will arrange for a certificate to be sent to the school.
