Will My Child Still Be Able To Socialise?

We understand that flexi schooling is a big step, we know that you'll have your concerns. We continually assess the stage your child is at. If learning in a one to one environment for numeracy is best for them, that is how they will learn at our school. If socialisation needs a little (or a lot of) support, that will be supported too. If small group work is how your child will learn best for science, great! Your child's sessions and week will fit entirely to their learning needs and strengths.

Here's just a few reasons why your children will thrive:

Parents can spend more quality time with their children and play an active role.

Children can follow their own interests, and different styles of learning can be respected and accommodated.

Children who have difficulties attending school full-time, for example because of illness or emotional or behavioural needs, have the opportunity to follow a reduced timetable but without being removed from the school environment altogether.

Many parents feel schooling starts too early when their children are neither developmentally, emotionally or intellectually ready.Parents of children with autistic spectrum conditions can find flexischooling meets their children’s needs better than either full-time school attendance or full-time home education.

School experience is balanced with time at home where school learning is supported while the child‘s need for a less stimulating environment is also met.

Gifted and talented children are often under challenged in schools and as a result may become bored, disruptive or withdrawn. Flexischooling offers the opportunity for them to study at an appropriate level at home while benefiting from the school environment.

Full-time school is inappropriate for children with some medical conditions.  They may tire easily, need medication or their condition may be just too problematic to manage while attending school full-time. Attending school for a manageable amount of time each week allows these children to maintain their friendships and prevents isolation.

Some children just don’t thrive in school. This can have a negative impact on all of their life experiences and relationships. The flexischooling balance is often shown to have a really positive impact.

School phobic children have crippling anxieties which make full-time school impossible for them. Flexischooling has offered many of these children a way back into education.

Bullied children can often fail to thrive or become school phobic and are often served well by flexischooling arrangements.

Children from bi-lingual families have found time to value and develop their mother tongue and culture. This has had positive effects on their all-round educational performance and ability to thrive within two or more cultural and language communities.
