Sitemap

This is the main sitemap for the site Home education in the UK, showing the broad subjects covered. Many of the pages listed lead to further pages, or links outside the site. Since there are now so many articles on three main topics (home education in general, mathematics, and parenting) these have their own index pages with brief descriptions of each relevant article.

Home education information UK – general introduction and front page to this site
Index of home education articles – articles about home education including the social aspects
Index of maths articles – introducing maths at various levels in home education
Index of parenting articles – family life and dealing with childhood problems in general
