WIRE Award is a project initiated and administered by Bristol and South Gloucestershire Standing Advisory Committees for Religious Education (SACREs).

Wire Gold Award

Has your school already achieved its WIRE Award?

If so Well Done.

If you have achieved the WIRE award and want to work for the next challenge - why not work towards the WIRE GOLD Award.

The idea behind the Wire Gold award is to encourage schools to go beyond individual activity and reach across the school, out to parents or to other schools in their area.
