Supplementary schools can then go on to obtain nationally recognised quality assurance, the NRCSE Quality Mark. Obtaining a Quality Mark requires evidence of safe and effective practice in line with Section 11 of the Children Act and at least one visit of the school in action by a registered quality assurance mentor or appropriate person. 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 develop their practice and build partnerships to further the academic achievement and well being of their pupils.
Quality assured supplementary schools can have their details included our searchable directory of quality assured supplementary schools. showing your commitment to providing a safe and effective learning environment and confirming that you have completed nationally recognised quality assurance (eg. the NRCSE Quality Mark, QiSS, Beacon Madrassah status, 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.
