RE and SACRE: newsletters and networking


Local NATRE groups operating in Hertfordshire

SACRE is keen to support and work with the existing networks in Hertfordshire and to promote the development of further ones, so that we can work closely in partnership with teachers and schools to ensure quality RE for all pupils. We are very proud of the tradition of networking in Herts and the work that teachers put into these collaborations.

NATRE (National Association of Teachers of RE) is the subject teacher association for RE professionals. It works to support those who teach and lead in all schools and institutions and at all stages of their career.
