27 Jun Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education (SACRE) Event
A group of pupils from Y6 represented St. Mary’s brilliantly this week as they spoke in front of an audience of 70 people (including the Mayor of Barnet) at a SCARE event at Hendon Town Hall. The children spoke proudly about their experience of Religious Education and the impact that their learning has had on their lives.
Barnet SACRE (Standing Advisory Council for Religious Education) is a body constituted to oversee the provision of Religious Education and acts of collective worship in the non-denominational Borough schools. SACRE works in partnership with the Local Authority, teachers, parents and faith groups, and draws its membership from these groups. It is also seen as a forum through which consultation may take place on faith issues affecting the community.
