Everything you need to know to coordinate SRE

 SRE coordinators are vital for the smooth running and effectiveness of SRE in NSW public schools.

SRE coordinators are appointed by their senior minister, and are responsible for leading and pastorally supporting SRE teachers, coordinating classes, communicating with the various stakeholders at the school and church, and maintaining authorisation records.


How to create SRE recruitment opportunities

The best ways to let potential new teachers know about the many opportunities to serve young people through SRE

The guide

The Guide to Primary and Secondary SRE provides a comprehensive summary of everything you need to know about SRE including legislation, policies, requirements for teachers, and Youthworks’ support for SRE coordinators.


Cross-authorisation is required where SRE providers agree to work together to deliver joint-denominational Christian SRE in their local schools. You must submit an SRE Teacher Register Form to the school confirming details of the arrangement.

You will need to send a Continuation Letter (Primary), a Continuation Letter (Secondary) or a Change in Arrangement Letter to the school in Term 4 to confirm arrangements for the following year.

Explaining the accreditation process

If a principal requests information about the accreditation process for Anglican SRE teachers, you can give them this SRE Accreditation Confirmation Letter.

Handling complaints

The SRE Complaints Handling Policy outlines the current procedures when a complaint is made against Anglican SRE in the Diocese of Sydney. You should use the SRE Complaints Report Template to document the complaint process and its resolution.

Sensitivity framework

The SRE Sensitivity Framework sets out guidelines for your SRE teachers engaging with sensitive issues in their classes.

The framework has been prepared for the Anglican Diocese of Sydney in consultation with SRE teachers, school counsellors, psychologists and public school leaders.

All Anglican SRE teachers are expected to comply with the framework.

In addition, other SRE providers are requested to conform with the framework when using the authorised curriculum and teaching resources of the Anglican Diocese of Sydney.

SRE Coordinators’ masterclass

Youthworks is so thankful for all you do as SRE Coordinators for SRE. We hope that you can come to one of our annual SRE Coordinators’ Masterclasses. These meetings provide a great opportunity to pray, share experiences, participate in training, and get updates on what is happening in SRE.
