Education Otherwise

Although education is compulsory in the UK for children between the ages of five and sixteen, school is not. Many families prefer to educate their children otherwise than at school, and it is their right under UK law to do so. Home educating families do not have to follow the National Curriculum and there is no single 'right' way to educate a child at home. Education Otherwise provides information and resources for home educating families and those considering home education for the first time, including guidance on home education and the law and links to local home education groups across the UK. In Penzance "PZ Home Ed" meet on Monday afternoons for workshops during term-time. You can contact them via the Education Otherwise website.
