SCHOOL IS NOT COMPULSORY. Welcome to FLAGS Home Education Group.
Thousands of children in the UK receive an education without attending school. This is often known as 'home-education' or 'home-schooling.'
Home-education is not 'school at home' (unless you want it to be.) You don't have to follow the National Curriculum, have time-tables or lesson plans (but you can if you wish.) You can choose an approach to learning that best suits your own child.
There is a large community of home-educating families in Devon, and a number of home-education groups in and around Exeter offering various activities and opportunities to get together for socialising and mutual support. Our group meets every Friday (term time) at a lovely venue set in a beautiful park in Exeter. We are always open to new members and welcome children of all ages from tots to teens. Whether you are currently home-educating or considering home-education you would be welcome to come along.
