This message is for both of you in this thread. We are considering home education for our 8 year old. The most difficult part to plan is social time with others of his age, which is why I joined this site. We live in Newcastle Upon Tyne.
I found your messages but you haven't continued the conversation publicly. Can you tell me if either of you is home educating and whether you know of local groups where the children can mix with others of the same age?
All the best
