Hello,

We're thinking of educating our primary school age daughter at home.

Are there any home schooling group classes in the PR3/Lancaster area? By that I mean, a tutor, teaching home educated children in a small group for a short time during the day?

You may find some information on this at Education Otherwise or by asking the local education authority.

Surely this wouldn't be home education?

Friends that belonged to a home ed group found help from LEA as they had information on local groups, internet information/sites and private tutors.

Education Otherwise is a HE nationwide sorce of information on groups, individuals and tutors etc.

It isn't unusual to find a group where the parents offer certain classes, for instance a friend who was an artist ran a group for home ed kids, another as a scientist so he ran groups for that, someone else spoke fluent french so she offered that class. It is quite usual to find within a group this kind of set up. They worked very well.

Thanks for the replies.

To the negative reply saying "surely it's not home education", the extra classes would be in conjunction with us as parents home educating.
