About this group

This Group is private and only members can see  who's in the group and what they post.


This is a group for parents / carer's in Cumbria, home educating a child/ren who have Special Educational Needs and/or disabilities or are seriously considering doing so.We want to create a place of support and understanding, a place that is non judgmental, somewhere that parents/carer's can talk, ask questions, share ideas, information, advice, tips, strategies and approaches.

A place to share resources and learning based ideas.

A place to arrange meet ups and activities for our SEND kids and their siblings.

And a place to keep up to date on SEND support available in Cumbria.

EOTAS Support Cumbria

If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn.

A group for families who live in Cumbria and are either considering EOTAS as an option for their child with SEN or that already have an EOTAS package in place.I am hoping this group can help families understand what EOTAS is, give families an idea of what an EOTAS package could include and also a place to share ideas, get advice and support one another.

I also want to spread the message to families not to deregister their child with SEN before considering EOTAS as an option. Especially those young people don't fit into mainstream or special school and their family feel they don't have any other option.

About this group

This Group is private and only members can see  who's in the group and what they post.


This is a group created by home educators, for home educators in Cumbria. It is a place to chat, share information, ideas, resources and blogs in a relaxed atmosphere.As you make your joining request, please could you confirm to admin that you are in Cumbria (or close enough to participate in Cumbrian activities) and that you are home educating or seriously considering it.

If you are a home educator who also works on a self employed basis as a tutor, please feel free to post information about your tuition services or skills you offer in the files section of the group. This will keep your information in a place where it can be more easily found, rather than lost somewhere in the conversation threads.

If you are a freelance tutor requesting to join the group and are not a home educator, please message an administrator to discuss.

Home Education on the A69 (Carlisle, Cumbria to Hexham, Northumberland)

About this group

Welcome. Grab a cuppa and make yourself at home.

This group for home educating families, or those seriously considering the journey, provides a safe place for members to post and find out about events, groups and opportunities of interest to the home school community that are happening within reasonable driving distance of the A69.

As most of this long stretch of road is sparsely populated one perk of the group is to introduce your family. This is a great opportunity to meet families living close with similar interests, please feel free to say how old your kids are, and what you're into. This is your page so please post events and suggest any meet ups.

This group probably won't meet all your needs so here are some other home ed Facebook pages you might find useful.
