Home education resources

Welcome to our home education hub!

We understand the unique challenges and rewards of educating your child at home and we're here to help. Whether you're new to home education or an experienced educator, our comprehensive resources, created by teachers, are here to support your home education journey.

Resources to support learners aged 5-11

To help you support your child’s learning at home, we have carefully curated a selection of downloadable teaching packs suitable for children in the key stage 1 and key stage 2 age range (ages 5-11). These resources complement learning objectives for this age group, are easy to use and help make learning engaging and effective.

Our teaching packs have been created by teachers and are designed for use in UK classrooms.
