All children in the UK between the ages of 5 and 16 must be educated according to age, ability, aptitude, and any special needs they may have. However, education does not have to take place within a school, and parents may educate their child at home if they wish. This category contains sites which describe ways of starting home education, and also those which offer advice, resources and support.
