Making the decision to either take your children out of school or to home educate them from the off can be daunting, and it is important to have as much information as possible before you start the process.

As a result, we’ve created this essential guide, with all the information you will need. There’s information on how to get started, advice on the importance of structure and creativity, and guidelines on lesson focus and planning.
You can also have a look at our Helpful Links page, for links to all of the County Councils in England, exam boards and major home education bodies.

We have many parents who use our site as part of their home education programme. The National Curriculum based nature of our worksheets means your children are learning the appropriate material for their age and ability. When used alongside a separate home education programme, EdPlace will add variety to your children’s learning, as well as helping you by monitoring their progress as they go.
