  • 12 months’ access to our subscriber-only pages with sample documents, policies and procedures and support.
  • 50% of the price of a place on one of our highly regarded training courses;
  • 15% off a full-course booking for your school or network of supplementary schools;
  • For supplementary schools, subscription also includes online support in following minimum standards and meeting the requirements of the Code of Practice for Supplementary Schools.


Supplementary schools can then go on to obtain a nationally recognised quality mark the Quality Framework Award for Supplementary Schools. Obtaining a Quality Framework Award requires evidence that the Code of Practice is met and at least one visit of the school in action by a registered quality assurance mentor. The mentor will provide a witness statement detailing practice in governance, management, teaching and partnership. The mentor will also provide a detailed recommendation of how the school can progress towards a Silver or Gold Quality Framework Award.

Quality assured supplementary schools can have their details included our searchable directory of supplementary schools. From 1st September 2016, the directory will only show supplementary schools that have registered with us their commitment to providing a safe and effective learning environment and have completed nationally recognised quality assurance (eg. Quality Framework, QiSS, Charities Evaluation Service, Ofsted).

A quality-assured entry on the directory shows funders, parents and mainstream schools that you are contributing to pupil achievement and strengthening local communities.

The National Resource Centre for Supplementary Education is a charity providing quality assurance and training for supplementary schools, Saturday schools,  after-school projects, mother-tongue classes, complementary schools and individuals developing out-of-school-hours educational support for children.
