Towards an educational philosophy

Just letting you know I’ve added a new page today…

I know that many parents worry about formulating an educational philosophy when they start out home educating, not only for themselves but also to explain their ideas to the Local Authority.

So to try and support those of you who need it I’ve added a page with ideas and tips to aid the development of your own. The ideas here are only ideas – not intended as truth or gospel – and may well not be in line with your own thinking. But even that might help you move towards what is!

Hope it’s useful. You can find it here:

Do please comment and let me know your thoughts on the matter. The more ideas here the more people are helped towards a successful and happy education for their children.

  1. I found your page on the educational philosophy really useful and timely too. We are just at the point of filling in the LA forms. I found it really helped to read through all of the thinking behind your letter. For me just now whilst the children are so young, it is providing the space to let them unfold in their own ways, discover their own interests and plenty of time for creative and imaginary play. I just need to put that onto the form now!
