The Standing Advisory Council on Religious Education (SACRE) has a duty under the 1988 Education Act to monitor the provision and quality of RE and collective worship in schools. The purpose is to formulate advice and support and to advise the Authority on the provision of Religious Education in all schools in Hertfordshire including Academies and Free Schools. We expect all schools (apart from Voluntary Aided Schools with a religious character) to complete the following 2018 RE survey.

This survey has been designed to be as least time-consuming as possible (approximately 15-25 minutes) to complete and if a school wishes it may be submitted anonymously. The survey aims be a helpful tool in summarising RE for you and your school to identify areas for development.

Any teacher completing this survey by November 5th 2018 will be entitled to receive a FREE download of the Hertfordshire Agreed Syllabus of Religious Education 2017-2022 for their school once the survey window has closed. (The school received a free hard copy last year). We are unable to offer a refund to schools who have previously purchased a digital download of this resource. Once the survey window has closed, any downloads will be charged at the usual rate.
