Start Your Journey Today!
A personal note from Naomi Mc Laughlan
Dear Parents and Carers,
First of all Thank You for your interest in the Professional Home Educator Academy!
The reason why I have started the PHEA is because I felt lost when I first started to home educate my three children a couple of years ago. I felt that there is a big gap between the information on mainstream schools and home education or homeschooling.
In the UK and most English speaking countries it is a myth that, by law, children have to attend school. They do not have to attend a school environment – even children with special education needs or SEN!
The 1996 Education Act (UK) states that:
“The parent of every child of compulsory school age shall cause him to receive efficient full-time education suitable –
(a) to his age, ability and aptitude, and
(b) to any special educational needs he may have, either by regular attendance at school or otherwise.”
Under (b) there is the specification that education can take place ‘at school or otherwise’ – it is the term ‘otherwise’ that allows for elective home education within the law. Therefore you, the parent or carer are ultimately responsible for the education of your child or children -regardless of the child’s place of education.
What’s the alternative to school?
The alternative is Home Education, sometimes called 'Elective Home Education' or Freeschool, to differentiate this from home-tutoring provided by the Local Authority. Home Education is more commonly known as Homeschooling or home-schooling in the US.
In order to make the start easier and give yourself and your family an advantage, you can now enrol here for only $48.50 or £29.77(approx.).
I hope to speak to you soon and I wish you all the Best of Luck on your Home-school Journey!
P.S.: Whether you are just starting to home educate or you have already started – the program will give you all the tools you need to create a successful home school environment!
