The law says that Religious Education
(RE) must be taught in all schools.
As RE is not part of the national
curriculum, it is the responsibility of the LA to ensure there is a
Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE) in place
A SACRE is set up to represent a balance
of all interests in the local community and give them the
opportunity to influence what pupils learn in RE, with the primary
role being to advise its LA on what needs to be done to improve RE
and collective worship for schools in its area.
