Proposed Regulation of Supplementary Schools: A Department of Education (DfE) Consultation

Academic Lead: Dr Ornette D Clennon

In my advisory work with the National Resource Centre for Supplementary Education (NRCSE), I have been involved in shaping NRCSE’s response to this latest consultation exercise.

The Department for Education called for evidence to inform the development of the government’s proposals for requiring certain out-of-school education settings to register and be subject to risk-based inspections.

Why should you respond?  Engaging with the call for evidence sends a powerful message to the government that supplementary schools care about the issue. NRCSE members voluntarily sign up to meet the Code of Practice for Supplementary Schools. The Quality Framework is a voluntary regulation scheme that over 420 supplementary schools have chosen to follow. As members, this consultation is an opportunity to inform the government about the good work that all of you undertake in providing language, core-curriculum and/or cultural education within a community context.
