Committee details

Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE)

Purpose of committee

SACREs (Standing Advisory Councils on Religious Education) are responsible in law for advising local education authorities on RE and collective worship.  There are over one hundred SACREs in England and Wales.  Each SACRE is composed of four representative groups (or three in Wales): Christian and other religious denominations, the Church of England (except in Wales), teachers' associations and elected councillors.


Each SACRE is required to publish an Annual Report that is sent to QCA (Qualifications and Curriculum Authority).  Each year QCA publishes a report that provides an overall analysis of the work of SACREs during the previous year.
