Religious Education

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.


  • 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

At Thameside Primary School, we follow the Thurrock agreed syllabus for RE; there are discrete units of learning. The curriculum provides pupils with a broad and clear knowledge of the key faiths, teaching them to respect the views and faiths of others.
