Hi Raggedanne, I'm not a home schooler but wanted to welcome you to the site. This site and the friendly people on it have helped me out heaps. Hope you find someone on here who can also help you. In the meantime, you could search through previous posts, hope that helps. X

Hi raggedyanne, I am homeschooling my two boys 9 and 11. I have a toddler too and hopefully she is absorbing all the knowledge while she sits on the floor playing!

Please do ask any questions!

I am a homeschooling parent too. If you intend to homeschool full time, the best place to start would be to find the homeschooling groups in your area if you haven't done that already. If you intend for your child to sit 11+ at some point then you will find the information here. Feel free to fire any questions. How old are you children?

Hi Mamabear :D

Hi, and welcome :-) I've home educated for years, although my eldest 3 are now at school and my youngest will be going in September :-)

Not in your area, but your local council can actually be a good place to get info - a quick search of BCC website and I found these:

http://www.birmingham.gov.uk/home-education
http://www.homeeducationbirmingham.org.uk/

HTH, and good luck :)

Thanks for your help JD.

I had already tried the second link you have posted numerous times, but there seems to be a problem with it.

Yes - my eldest tried a term at school in the middle of y5, but apart from that was at home until she started y7. The others were always HE'd - #2 started school at y9, #3 at y7, and #4 will be starting secondary school as well.
