Setting a check box as 'required'

I have made a form in Indesign and set a check box as 'required'. However the form is allowing it to be submitted without this box checked.

I have looked at the form in Acrobat and the field is set as 'required'.

How can I change this?

You would need to use a script to do it. Try searching the JavaScript forum for "validate required fields" and you'll find some code examples.
