NESA has requested our help in collecting real samples of home schooling records from home-educating parents to be published on the NESA website.
“The purpose of NESA publishing the samples is to:
- assist parents by presenting some of the diverse methods and approaches real parents use in educating their children
- provide ideas for parents, particularly those new to home schooling, about how an educational program may be developed and implemented as well as how learning progress might be recorded.”
SHEN and HEA are particularly keen to collect examples of simple plans and record-keeping techniques that are less intensive and time-consuming to develop and keep. If you can help us with this, by sharing samples of your plans, please email them to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a completed permission form (attached).
Alternatively, you can send samples directly to NESA, following instructions in the attached collection form.
Please note, that you must fill in this form to grant permission for NESA to use your samples. They must be copyright-free.
“A new selection of samples of home schooling ‘records’ is to be collected for publication on the NESA website. The samples are to be ‘real’, that is, actual records developed by home schooling parents who are willing to provide their permission for NESA to publish them on the website.
Attached is a collection form that is to be completed by parents who agree to share their records. You will note this form also requires the parent to confirm that the material is copyright free.
The types of records needed for this purpose include:
* sample education plans
* sample records of teaching activities
* sample records of a child’s progress and achievement.”
