The home-educating community needs your help!!!!

Home educators have always had problems getting access to exam centres, either because of distance or because of excessive pricing by the centres. Since the outbreak of COVID this has become even more of a problem, with many centres shutting their doors to home educators completely, leaving the poorest and most vulnerable in our community suffering the most.

So, we are asking if you would please sign and share this petition, asking the government for access to exam centres for home-educated students, with as many people as you can and help raise awareness of the problem home-educated children face, so that we too can get the same rights for our children that every other child in the UK has: to take public examinations.

Thank you so much for reading, signing and sharing.

Can’t promise it will change your life, but if you home educate in the Cambridgeshire area, there may be one or two links that you will find helpful.
And occasionally the odd dachshund too. Who can resist?!
