• Advice from Home Educators

    "I'd suggest not trying to do too much. Burn out can happen very quickly. The first year is hard and like lots of people, I tried to do everything. Lots of projects, every group and visit available. I was driving for hours and we weren't enjoying it all."

    Read our FAQ and the legal stuff. Knowing your rights is VERY important.

Information about Home education (useful to print and keep handy).

5.11 Local authorities have a general duty to make arrangements to safeguard and promote the welfare of children (section 175 of the Education Act 2002) in relation to their education functions as a local authority. This applies equally to children who are being educated at home, as it does to children attending school.  This duty does not entitle a local authority to insist on visiting a child’s home, or seeing the child, simply for the purposes of monitoring the provision of home education.
