Luton Borough Council



The SACRE has a statutory duty:

  • to¬†advise Luton Council upon matters connected with religious worship in community schools and in foundation schools which do not have a religious character. Religious Education in these schools is to be given in accordance with the Agreed Syllabus;
  • to advise Luton Council on teaching methods, choice of materials and teacher training in Religious Education and collective worship;
  • to produce an annual report;
  • to require Luton Council to review the Locally Agreed Syllabus for Religious Education at least every five years.

In addition, the SACRE can consider applications made by a head teacher to release some or all of the pupils in a particular school from the requirement for collective worship to be wholly or mainly of a broadly Christian character. This is called a determination.
