WELCOME TO THE BRIDGE FLEXI SCHOOL
Firstly, take a deep breath. We know that things have been tough but we're here to help. Everything will be ok from now on, we're here to take your hand on every step. Your child deserves an education. They deserve to be listened to, to be understood - to have their emotions taken into consideration. We're glad that you found us, the next step of your journey is going to be very exciting.
So, what is
Deciding to home educate your child is a big commitment, and not one that suits every family. But it needn’t be a straight choice between home educating or sending your child to school. Flexi-schooling – where a child attends school for part of the week, and learns at home for the rest of it – is an ideal solution for some families, and becoming increasingly popular.
