No Simon - it's not a school for home educated children. That would be an oxymoron. It's a free school. For families that want to send their children to a school.
'No Simon - it's not a school for home educated children. That would be an oxymoron. It's a free school.

I am sure that those whose literacy skills were too poor to manage this are grateful to you, Anonymous.
In many ways, this school already is a 'school of home educated children'. About half its pupils are HE'd kids who opt in for one a single subject (a couple of hours a week) or more. It's very popular among the HE community locally. Even more would use it in that way if it was free.
And that would be a form of flexischooling......
Not really. Two hours a week doing Drama at a Montessori school is more or less the same as two hours a week spent in a piano teacher's house learning the piano, or 2 hours a week in sports classes at the Leisure centre. Lots of HE kids do that sort of thing and no one calls it 'flexi-schooling'.When those 2 hours are spent in the company of other HE'd kids, being tutored in a specific subject at the HE'ing parent's request, it's simply part of HE, no matter whether it occurs in a village hall, someone's home, a sports centre, a school or a farm (in this case both school and farm).
