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). 

Cambridgeshire Agreed Syllabus for RE 2013

There is a legal requirement for the SACRE to develop a locally agreed syllabus for religious education which is reviewed every five years and its effectiveness and appropriateness is monitored annually.
