Whitefriars Church of England Primary Academy

Religious Education Quality Mark       

We are very excited, following a thorough review, to have been awarded the silver RE quality mark (REQM).

The REQM recognises high quality RE, particularly those schools which are providing their learners with authentic experiences and contributing to whole school outcomes. It has four strands:

- Learners and Learning
- Teachers and Teaching
- Curriculum Subject leadership
- Continuing Professional Development

RE makes a powerful contribution to young people’s learning and is a very important part of our curriculum. It provides them with the chance to explore the big ideas of religion and belief and to think about what matters in their own lives.

The RE Quality Mark has two purposes: it recognises good practice in RE and also provides a powerful tool for development. Schools which have applied for the award have found that it affirms the work they are already doing, raises the profile of the subject and gives them ideas and confidence for developing their practice even further.

Our next aim is to achieve the gold mark!
