Coordinators

Co-ordination of SRE is done by:

  • a member of the school staff is appointed to coordinator SRE at the school
  • a coordinator appointed by the local churches.

Role of the Church SRE Coordinator

The revised ICCOREIS Handbook sets out the duties of the person appointed by the churches to coordinate with the school over SRE. Download the relevant chapter here. To access the rest of the Handbook click here.

Please make sure your teachers (and prospective teachers) are aware of upcoming training.           Training dates and details are located on our SRE Teachers page.
