we are so sorry our blog post has been neglected on our recent topic home education but as a busy business owner customer come first so blogs collect cobwebs well for just a few days that is lol. so back to the subject in hand Home education and teaching your own kids instead of going to school.
Just to recap here in the UK you can teach your children yourself. You don’t have to be a qualified teacher.Plus if your children are under school age and you havent registered them for a school yet, then you do not have to tell the local authority. Its only when you take kids out of school that it becomes an issue to make sure your child is still receiving a good all round education that meets your child’s individual learning needs.
