How to help your home schooled child achieve

If your child is off school through illness, or you’ve chosen the home education route, it’s important to get educated yourself … about what your options are.

The education system is undergoing major syllabus changes this year – which could have an impact on how your child learns, as well as what they can/can’t do.

Our advice is to get Googling! Plus… Are there any home education groups around Manchester and Cheshire? Check out Ed Yourself – a useful website packed with advice and info.

Get practical…

Don’t forget, your son or daughter can still achieve qualifications outside the school grounds. If attending school is out of the question, KS3, IGCSE and A Level distance learning courses are available to buy.

What’s more, if your child comes under the local authority and he/she is away through illness for more than 15 days, you are entitled to a minimum five hours’ home teaching – without you footing the bill.

Of course, five hours only stretches so far. So you might need to arrange further private tuition in core subjects yourself to make sure your child stays on track.

In fact, many parents in areas such as Wilmslow, Stockport and Altrincham contact our tutor team for exactly that. And find the extra support definitely helps their child focus, as well as go forward despite challenging circumstances.
