ATTENDING COMMUNITY-LED SUPPLEMENTARY EDUCATION IS A VITAL PART OF LIFE FOR MANY CHILDREN, YOUNG PEOPLE AND COMMUNITIES ACROSS THE COUNTRY – WE ARE COMMITTED TO ENSURING THAT THE SECTOR IS VALUED, RESOURCED AND SUPPORTED TO ENSURE ALL CHILDREN ARE ABLE TO THRIVE.
The YPF has come together with the Centre for Supplementary Education (formerly NRCSE) to ensure the continuation of support and guidance to community-led settings offering supplementary (also known as out-of-school) education to children; enabling them to deliver safe, effective and sustainable services and to raise their profile among mainstream schools and other children’s services.
We provide a service to out-of-school settings (primarily, but not exclusively, led by Black, Asian, refugee and minority communities) enabling them to access appropriate support and training at times and in locations that are convenient to them.
We aim for all out-of-school settings in England that are active and offering curriculum and/or mother-tongue tuition to be encouraged to use the quality framework to demonstrate their adherence to the DfE Code of Practice and safeguarding guidance.Our ideal is for appropriate, rigorous and developmental quality assurance to be available for all out-of-school educational provision (including faith instruction and privately-run tutoring) so that parents and children have access to real options to address educational disadvantage and underachievement that are not determined by socio-economic status; as is presently the case.
