Yes, homeschooling is regulated in the UK. According to the Department for Education, parents who homeschool their children must ensure they receive a suitable education. This can be through a formal homeschooling curriculum, or through a more informal education that considers the child's individual interests and needs.
In England, parents who homeschool must register their child as a 'home-educated child' with their local authority. The local authority will then monitor the child's progress to ensure they receive a suitable education.
In Wales, parents who homeschool must provide evidence of their child's educational progress to their local authority every year.
In Scotland, parents who homeschool must provide evidence of their child's educational progress to the Scottish government every year.
In Northern Ireland, homeschooling is not specifically regulated, but parents are still required to ensure their children receive a suitable education.
Because we only ever work with real UK teachers you will always get a highly experienced teacher who is safe, reliable and up to speed with the current curriculum and exam requirements. We vet all 20,000+ tutors, and they are all DBS checked.
Team up with other families to create a small tuition group at your home or online. Children should be of similar ages, abilities and ambitions. The tuition fee will automatically be divided equally among your group. Learn more
We're almost certain you will be happy with your choice of teacher, but if the first lesson is not a success, for whatever reason, you will not be charged for the lesson and we will immediately look to find you an alternative teacher.
