Home Education Information in the UK

A number of parents in the UK now choose, or are forced, into educating their children at home. Below are resources with information on various aspects of home educating your children.

They produce a range of publications and leaflets and provide consultancy services to professionals.

Education Otherwise

A UK-based membership organisation which provides support and information for families whose children are being educated outside school, and for those who wish to uphold the freedom of families to take proper responsibility for the education of their children."

The Satellite School

If you are home schooling in the UK, it is possible to get your LEA to fund The Satellite School. Note the word "possible", as it is not necessarily easy and varies between LEA's, but then nothing involving an LEA is ever easy, well not the ones we've come across anyway. Here's what The Satellite School say about themselves..... "If you're a parent, or a professional involved with children who are not receiving a full-time school education then you'll be interested in Satellite School's new and proven solution to their educational problems. We offer a full-time education, following the UK National Curriculum, for the chronic sick (including ME/CFS sufferers), pupils recovering from illness/injury, special needs, school-phobics, excluded pupils, and children whose parents prefer home education."

Human Scale Education

A charity which promotes and advises on small schools and other initiatives which support human scale values in education
