Certification

NRCSE certification: Silver Award.
We are proud to be part of the UK’s national network of supplementary schools. The National Resource Centre for Supplementary Education (NRCSE) awarded us its Silver Award in June 2017.
In 2017, the Petite École de Reigate was once again inspected by Pascale Vassie, Director of the NRCSE. This inspection was followed by a presentation of the pedagogical aspects of the school at the NRCSE offices in London. At the end of this inspection, the school received a “Silver Award“. Despite its very young age, the Petite École de Reigate is only the third FLAM school to receive this award in the United Kingdom (out of 53 schools).

We are proud of all the work we have done to get there. And we would like to thank all the staff. NRCSE's comments to staff were very positive and encouraging. Congratulations to the whole team for a great job!

Excerpts from the 2017 NRCSE inspection report:
– Excellent environment, well-equipped.
– I was particularly impressed with the children’s commitment to their language development.
– The children were audibly taking responsibility for their own learning.
– The classes were rigorous and fun. The lessons well planned with an excellent use of various resources. 
– Parents were clearly engaged in the development of the school and committed to supporting the teachers.
– Excellent procedures for keeping children safe and ensuring an effective learning environment.

Parapluie FLAM

La Petite École de Reigate is a member of the Parapluie FLAM Association, which networks some forty FLAM structures in the United Kingdom. It is a valuable source of information, advice, resources and training.
The president of the Parapluie FLAM Joëlle Simpson visited us during the 2017 end of year show and testified: 

First of all a big thank you for these warm moments spent in Reigate on Saturday. They made me realize how far I have come since the early days of the first Little Schools! Frankly, I could have found myself in an already well-established association: Reigate seems to me to be becoming a pearl in the setting of the region it serves! Congratulations to the whole team.
