Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education

The Sandwell Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE) is a local authority body which is responsible for the character of Religious Education (RE) in Sandwell schools.

Under the 1988 Education Act each Local Education Authority (LEA) is required (not merely allowed, as before) to establish a Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE) to advise the Authority and its teachers on matters concerning Religious Education (RE). It also has a duty to convene an occasional group called an Agreed Syllabus conference, every five years, to review the Agreed Syllabus.
