Food for Thought

Parents of teenagers have many questions about exams: where to sit exams; how much does it cost and is there any financial help; can young teens go to college early; is it possible for young teens to attend school on a part-time basis to take some exams; what are the implications of the new assessment scheme for GCSEs.

In addition, families wonder what will happen when the Government raises the school leaving age in England, will home education still be legal. We are asked whether it is possible to claim Child Benefit for young people who aren't going to college or studying for exams and we also receive enquiries about Education Maintenance Allowance for home education. Many home educating lone parents are concerned about the changes to the benefit system, with the end to Income Support for lone parents of children over the age of 7.
