The National Curriculum
Each local authority sets the curriculum for RE through the 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 on religious education (RE) and collective worship. Every council responsible for children's services must have a SACRE committee.
