The NSW Department of Education requires all SRE Providers to have a copy of their SRE program, or a summary of the program, publicly available online.
The Archbishop of Sydney is responsible for the authorisation of Anglican SRE material in the Diocese of Sydney. He has authorised only the SRE curriculum material produced by Anglican Youthworks for Anglican SRE.
In Primary SRE, workbooks are available for most units and teachers are encouraged to use these where possible.

SRE Sensitivity Framework
The SRE Sensitivity Framework provides guidelines for engaging with sensitive issues in Special Religious Education (SRE). It 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 this framework. In addition, other SRE Providers are requested to conform to these guidelines when using the authorised curriculum and teaching resources of the Diocese.
