Frequently Asked Questions
Answer all of your questions
The ultimate question! Home schooling comes in various forms, but to put it simply, it refers to a child or young adult receiving their education away from traditional classroom environments, instead being taught by a parent, guardian or specialist home schoolers, such as MAX Homeschooling. The requirements vary from country to country, but children in the UK are legally obliged to receive full-time education from 5-16.
In short, any child, other than those with special educational needs enrolled at a specialist school. To ensure your schooling system adheres to UK standards, all children must receive full-time education, whether that is from a mainstream school, parent, guardian or tutor. If your child falls in the SEN bracket, you must speak to your school before allowing your child to make the switch to home schooling.
Absolutely! No qualifications are necessary, so any adult can teach in a home schooling environment.
