Become accredited by the NRCSE

Once we have received and approved your application we will support you in becoming accredited by the NRCSE


In order to become accredited by the NRCSE and receive the quality mark schools will  

need to complete the following: 

1. Complete a 3-day Good Management Course 

2. Produce a full management folder comprising of all the policies and procedures 

3. Prepare a portfolio of evidence of teaching, learning and governance 

4. Have a school visit to show that all the above is being implemented 

5. Attend a Quality Recognition Meeting 

The 3-day course for supplementary schools helps providers of out-of-school activities for children become further accredited.

The REC will be working with the NRCSE to organise the 3-day course which will bring together various Russian Schools. This will be an excellent opportunity for schools to come together, share experiences and learn how to improve the management of their schools. 

The 3-day course helps schools prepare a School Management Pack which consists of:

  • A welcome pack for parents

  • Staff and volunteer handbooks

  • Management committee guides

  • Safeguarding policies and procedures

The good management pack will help you meet your local authority’s Section 11 requirements

It is also your first step towards quality assurance and an NRCSE Quality Mark.

Schools will need to become accredited by the NRCSE and receive their Quality Mark in order to receive their full REC accreditation.

The REC will run NRCSE 3-day management courses a minimum of 3 times a year (at a discounted rate). The REC aims to support all Russian Schools who enroll in the Management Course. The REC will campaign on behalf of the NRCSE and apply for funding to reduce costs that Russian Schools may encounter. 


REC School Assessment and Accreditation

Following accreditation from the NRCSE, the REC specialists will then visit your school. The REC specialists in Russian Education will evaluate the schools performance and following inspection and evaluation, will grant the REC accreditation (Bronze, Silver or Gold)

If you are already registered and accredited by the NCRSE you will skip step 2
