Welcome to the NRCSE Directory of Supplementary Schools! The directory is fully searchable with detailed information for out-of-school education settings that are registered NRCSE members, including location, contact details, subjects taught and levels of quality assurance. To find a school in your area enter the local authority or town in the search box, to find all schools teaching a particular language, enter that language in the search box.
The Bronze Quality Framework Award showed that a school had basic management procedures in place to keep children safe. Before giving a Bronze QF Award, NRCSE required a mentor from the local authority or other appropriate local agency to visit the school and provide a witness statement detailing what they observed. Following the many significant changes in local authority structures and staffing we no longer facilitate a separate national award for minimum safeguarding standards but recognise and support local authority and Ofsted safeguarding standards.
Silver and Gold QF Awards and the new NRCSE Quality Mark build on successful adherence to safeguarding standards and further require schools to present evidence of the learning environment, teaching, partnership, staff development and financial management.

We now we list only those supplementary schools that are quality assured. Up to 31 July 2017, 489 schools had completed a Quality Framework Award. This scheme is now closed but we recognise the validity of Quality Framework Awards until their expiry date and other nationally recognised quality assurance schemes including Ofsted and the new NRCSE Quality Mark. To be sure of that your school’s entry remains in the online directory, please log in and register for a Quality Mark!
