Learning At Home Potters Bar 

Home educating your child can be an exciting yet daunting prospect. Whether you have been home educating for a while, or just considering it as an option, we can help. Tutortoo Potters Bar has specialist home education tutors available who can support you with every element of your homeschooling journey. Together, we help to boost your child’s confidence and results in a range of academic subjects. 

The Decision To Home Educate 

An increasing number of parents are choosing to home educate their children. This can be for a wide variety of reasons. Anne Longfield, the Children’s Commissioner, has stated very clearly: ”There are clear indications that the growth in home education is related to the rise in children leaving school due to their needs being unmet.” This is a sad indictment on the national education system. 
 
Home educating your child is not a small decision. While it may seem intimidating, it can be 
incredibly rewarding, especially depending on the reason for considering removing your child. If you do choose to start learning from home in Potters Bar, our team of tutors is here to offer support and knowledge through every step and support you in your child’s learning style. 
Legally, home educators are only required to be literate and numerate to the level required for their age, ability and any special needs they have. Everything else, including exams, are technically optional. The decision on if and when the child takes them is the parent's. The teaching style is also entirely up to the parent. Some parents choose to stick to the national curriculum. Others choose to use other approaches for teaching their children. Provided that they are following the law, every teaching style or method is just as valid as the rest. 
 
Are you considering home education? Or have you been home educating your child for years? Wherever you are on your homeschooling journey, Tutortoo Potters Bar is here to support you. 

Help and Advice is Available 

When first considering home educating your child, a concern for some parents is how they're going to take exams outside of school. Fortunately, many schools accept external candidates to sit in on exams. Plus, there are specialist exam centres that take candidates for a wide range of subjects at both GCSE & A Level. The only downside is that there is a charge involved with sitting an exam as an external candidate, along with costs of the learning materials, such as textbooks. 
 
In most situations there is no funding available for parents who are home educating their children but there are some exceptions. These largely apply where students are not off-rolled from a school and where there might be additional learning needs and/or disabilities.
