Isle of Wight SACRE


The Role of Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE)

Since 1988, Local Authorities have been required to establish a SACRE.

SACRE is responsible for advising the Local Authority in matters concerning the teaching of Religious Education and Collective Acts of Worship.  It also has a monitoring role in this subject.  SACRE decides on applications for determinations of cases in which requirements for Christian collective worship is not to apply.  It can also require the Local Authority to review its Agreed Syllabus and is required to publish an Annual Report of its work.

SACRE should reflect broadly the proportionate strength of religions or denominations in the area.
