SACRE committee

Thurrock Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE) is a committee that meets 3 times a year at the Civic Offices, New Road, Grays.

SACRE's main function is to advise us on religious education (RE) and collective worship. Every council responsible for children's services must have a SACRE committee.


  • reviews the syllabus for RE on a regular basis
  • offers guidance on resources and methods of teaching in consultation with Thurrock schools
  • monitors the quality of provision for RE and collective acts of worship in Thurrock

Representation on SACRE is according to current religious proportionality in Thurrock.

We publish details of SACRE online.
