SACRE Medium and Long-Term Planning


The Chair explained that further to work undertaken on SACREs self-evaluation it would be important to look at medium-term priorities and well as longer-term priorities, development areas and timescales.


He therefore suggested that the meeting split in to 2 groups to discuss with a view to discussing in more depth at the next meeting of SACRE.


Initial Feedback on Areas of discussion:


Short-term planning

·       Improve membership.

·       Provide better support to schools – impact in classroom.

·       Further work on religious and non-religious worldviews.


Long-term planning

·       Improve attendance, look to bring in members of faith to meetings for purposes of presentation, with a view to rebuilding the community network.

·       Researching the possibility of a Youth SACRE

·       Attending network meeting to share best practice.

·       Annual Conference – seek funding through community cohesion.
