The Role and Composition of SACRE

The purpose of a SACRE is to advise the local authority (LA) on matters related to religious education and collective worship in state maintained schools.

The LA is responsible for the composition of SACRE. SACRE is made up of three groups:

  • Representatives of Christian denominations and other religions to reflect broadly the proportionate strength of that denomination or religion in the area.

  • Associations representing teachers.

  • LA representatives.

SACRE may co-opt additional non-voting members in accordance with the constitution.

WASACRE – Wales Association of Standing Advisory Councils on Religious Education

The members of each SACRE are also members of WASACRE. The purpose of WASACRE is to provide a forum for the exchange of good practice and to represent the aims, work, and views of its member SACREs.
