Home education means doing it my way.

Home education means doing it my way.

Let parents of children under the age of 7 educate guided by the schools but using their own methods and remove the 3 hour guideline for keystage 1 during the nationwide lockdown. Remove the need to upload work to apps for teacher assessment. If parents are educating then let it be in a proper home education style. We are not trained to be teachers.

Why is this important?

For the mental health of parents and young students everywhere the wellbeing of those being sent to school unnecessarily because parents can not maintain the 3 hours a day plus uploading to platforms. especially when they have more than one child.
Children in Europe do not a have the same pressures at this age. Most do not attend school until age 7. There is no difference in their future wellbeing or education at a level and gcse ages.
Parents are being told to send their children to school if they cannot meet the 3 hours a day target. This goes directly against the advice of the national lockdown and attempts to reduce the impact of covid 19.
