10 years on from the development of a tailored quality assurance scheme for supplementary schools much as changed. Local authorities have undergone dramatic changes in structure, responsibilities and capacity. The Department for Education has changed the way it looks at supplementary education and new duties on local authorities are in danger of moving the focus of support for supplementary schools from education to purely safeguarding.
What can we do together to support community-led supplementary schools to develop and thrive as safe and effective learning environment for children and young people where they can continue to learn within their communities an enriched curriculum reflecting culture, language, faith?
Please let Gosia McKane know if you are able to join us for some brief reflection on the past 10 years and some realistic and robust building of support that can be sustained for the next 10 years.
