Awards and Accolades
Gold RE Quality Mark
We are very pleased to announce that we have been awarded the highest accolade from the Religious Education Council of England and Wales: the Gold RE Quality Mark. The REQM recognises high quality RE, providing learners with authentic experiences and contributing to whole school outcomes.
In June, we welcomed Mr Robert Boulter, RE Quality Mark Assessor, to the Academy to meet with pupils and to discuss the fantastic learning taking place in RE. In his report, he said, "Pupils articulate knowledge and understanding of themes within RE beyond their age. It is more A level than middle school. It is phenomenal to witness. Huge independence of thought, critical thinking skills expressed. Exemplary leadership, within the school and with outside groups, role modelling the delivery of RE of the highest calibre. Written and verbal evidence, coupled with sheer enthusiasm, demonstrates the central importance of RE within the school as a key driver of excellence in achievement, behaviour and ethos. It is a credit to the school. It was a privilege to witness such a vibrant department. I was enriched."
We look forward to continuing to strive for excellence, knowing that 'all things are possible through Him' (Philippians 4:13).
