Local authorities have a duty to establish a Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE) to advise them on matters relating to collective worship in community schools and on religious education. Religious education is a statutory part of the basic curriculum for all pupils.
SACRE publishes support materials, approves a programme of training for teachers and sponsors or supports other projects, which it deems to be consistent with its responsibility to promote religious education and spiritual, moral, social and cultural education in schools. Each year Cambridgeshire SACRE submits a report of its activities to the National Association of SACREs (NASACRE).
SACRE meetings are held at least once a term. They are open meetings and you are welcome to attend. The meetings are held in the Kreis Viersen Room at Shire Hall, Castle Hill, Cambridgeshire, CB3 0AP from 16:30-18:30.
Meeting dates for 2019/20 are:
- Wednesday 2 October 2019
- Wednesday 5 Feb 2020
- Thursday 18 June 2020
