Download the School Evidence forms. Highlight those sections which you think apply to your school.
The School Evidence Form should be shown to the assessor on the day of the visit. Please do not send this form to the REQM office unless it is requested for moderation purposes. The form is available in English or Welsh
Schools that specialise in children with SEND are welcome to amend the evidence form so that it is suitable for the RE in their school. Please contact the Project Manager if you have any questions about this process.
Look at the exemplar evidence provided and complete the form using your own school’s examples. This is not intended to be hard work: it is gathering evidence. The correct evidence can tell the story of RE in your school.
Download either the REQM primary or secondary questionnaire.
These documents are available in English or Welsh.
Arrange for groups of pupils to complete the questionnaire – this should be a cross section of the learners in your school.
(Young children and those needing additional support can work with a TA.) Pupils do not have to include their names, unless they wish to. Some schools are offering the questionnaire to all pupils, but this is not necessary. The learner questionnaires are a key element of evidence for the award.
What happens next
Once you have completed the online application form an assessor will be appointed by the REQM office and you will be notified via email.
Your assessor will then contact you to arrange a date and time to visit your school. The visit is expected to last no longer than 2 hours and 15 minutes.
The evidence form and pupil questionnaires should be kept to show your assessor on the day of the assessment, these do not need to be sent to the REQM office unless requested for moderation purposes..
The assessor will speak with the headteacher or delegated member of the senior leadership team, the subject leader, and a small group of pupils and will look at a sample of the evidence you have collected.
The school will be invoiced one month prior to the assessment, or as soon as a date is arranged should this be less than one month in advance.
Please note, the REQM office will confirm the level achieved and send the certificate after the assessment. We regret we cannot make the award until payment is received.
