New REQM Criteria

The REC has responded to government advice about the ongoing pandemic, and we have changed the way we manage the award. We have suspended physical site visits to help prevent the spread of the virus. We moved to an online assessment process last April. All the new paperwork for the school application process and the award has been updated and is available on the REQM website

When you apply you will receive details about how the online process is carried out. We want to keep the REQM community, and the wider RE community, in touch with each other and with key developments in the subject during this difficult time.

Please contact our administrator on, or the project manager, ( for further information. Thank you all for your support for RE, and your enthusiasm for this award.
