Westminster Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE)

Image representing the resource page: bible-4179472_1920

Welcome to the Westminster SACRE page, which includes Westminster's Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education, guidance on Collective Worship and Determinations, the annual SACRE reports and notes of the termly meetings.

 

Standing Advisory Councils on Religious Education - known as SACREs - are responsible for advising local authorities on RE and collective worship. There are more than a hundred SACREs in England and Wales, each composed of four representative groups (or three in Wales): Christian and other religious denominations; the Church of England (except Wales), teachers' associations and elected councillors.

As well as providing advice, a SACRE has the responsibility to:
  - Publish an annual report
  - Decide whether the LA's agreed syllabus for RE needs to be reviewed and, if so, require them to do so;
  - Provide advice to the LA on collective worship in its schools (although not in the case of voluntary aided or controlled schools); and
  - Consider any request from headteachers to hold collective worship that is not of a broadly Christian character.
