Hi,just wondering if anyone had any experience of this and if there were any groups to inform me and my dh.
I have just started flexi-schooling. My DC - at the age of 5 - has joined a mixed class of Reception and YR1. This was the best fit I could find both in terms of having a summer born child and a sudden change of circumstances meaning I can't HS full-time. My DC is attending 3 full days per week and I HS the other two. We have got off to a lousy start but that's not due to flexi-schooling but more to do with the school's culture.
Gove has made flexi-schooling incredibly difficult for schools to accommodate. That said, if you are keen, simply email or phone schools to establish if they are prepared to accommodate your request.
There are 2 primary schools in England that have a high proportion of flexi-schooled pupils and they have both achieved Good Ofsted reports.
Erpingham Primary School
HollinsClough C of E School
Hope that helps.
