WIRE Award

Widening Inclusivity in Religious Education

The WIRE award recognises excellence in RE in schools throughout Bristol and South Glos. It is completely free to take part.

To gain the award for your school:

  • Somebody from your school must attend an RE conference or attend an RE Hub meeting;
  • Students must visit a place of worship that is not Christian (or a majority faith represented in your school);
  •  Arrange an encounter day or RE event and invite a member of SACRE OR enter a competition to do with RE, such as Spirited Arts.

WIRE Gold Award

In addition to the WIRE award, schools are also invited to collect the WIRE Gold Award.

The WIRE Gold Award encourages schools to go beyond individual activity and reach across the school, out to parents, or to other schools in their area.

Schools can choose from a ‘menu’ of activities to achieve their award. This can be found in the downloadable document below.
