Then save money by getting rid of 80% of the worst teachers and turning schools into research centres and community hospitals.


Yes, because what actually can a teacher really do better than a lay person?!

Why do they bother with the training and expertise to be able to manage a group of disperate and unique individuals, assess them continually but discretely to help the ones that need it or push the ones that need that also. And teach them all the curriculum (10 subjects in primary) effectively based on what they know, should know or need to know next. And continually engage them.

And then, support them emotionally, be a parent figure often, role model, inspiration and guide. Also, fill in gaps that parents forget- hygiene, politeness, sharing, self control. The list goes on.

If you think you can do a better job than a teacher, take your child out of full time education. See how exceptional you are at it.

Twinkl is also a really good resource, they've created a home learning timetable and packs. They are giving access for a month to parents - go to twinkl.co.uk/offer and use code CVDTWINKLHELPS
This is fantastic. Provides a day by day breakdown which is great. Less for me to try and work out whilst I'm trying to do my own work. Really difficult to find bits for those in KS1. This site is really good for that. Thanks OP

We did take our children out of the system... Sadly they were so badly let down by the majority of teachers it was the only option we had. Our children now have a much broader knowledge than the curriculum ever could have offered. But,if you are a teacher, then you do sound like one who cares.

Glad it helps you out, happy to do what I can. If you need any further support, then feel free to pm me, and I'll do my best to help.
Tes has resources, but not all free. There are some very good tutorials on YouTube, anyone who has tried for diy etc know there are some equally very poor too, so a bit of patience needed to go through them.

Yes not every family can manage to bring up their children to become decent well rounded individuals, that's where schools R so important. I don't believe every teacher is very good I'm sure there are hopeless ones. Good for you that you are a decent parent and bring your child up well and educate them teach them what's right and wrong, if education was left solely to families I'm sure there would be a lot more crime.
Im from a family of five children my parents never got on my mum had mental health problems my dad didn't really seem to care they definitely would not have been doing any type of home schooling if we were in this situation.
i have three older sisters and it felt like they were always bossing us about and making sure we went to school did our homework, gave us certain morals one respecting and looking up to women. This caused me certain mental health issues I realised as growing up which fed into my anxiety and led to depressions among all the other stuff. We always had to be adult at child age washing, ironing cooking cleaning etc from age 6. So we had to b mature at an early age,
anyway we we all excelled at school I think from those life experiences education made us practical and able to work things out at an early age, one thing that suffered for me was reading, always struggle to focus on reading this had been a deficiency for me, I am fourty four and can count on one hand how many books I have read In life. This does hold you back as you always find in the end you can't keep up when having to absorb loads of text as it stresses me out.
all my sisters got firsts and became teachers and now consultants and deputy heads. So they did very well me not so well.
anyway my point is I have conflicting thoughts about school, when I look back at it I had a negative view on it as I in the end dropped out and never seen any of my friends since due from shame about how my life has gone, I got good GCSEs but tried a levels over numerous years at school then college and always dropped out from depression and falling behind. But no matter how negatively I look back on my experience it did provide normality, a social aspect, structure and obviously knowledge, although at the time I didn't feel I gained much only more so over the years realise if I weren't taught certain things I probably would not necessarily know it now, science for instance, my favourite subject at the time, it is such a brilliant topic, I mean even when I talk to my mum now I realise maybe her standard of education probably wasn't as good as she thinks the moon shines of its own accord, stars are just twinkly shiny objects in the sky and when it clouds over that there are just no stars in the sky at the time or then moon isnt shining.

Thanks so much for sharing. Our school has only referred us to links and it's a minefield out there, so this is perfect for 2 school going children. Will be following you for any new material you find of use. Thanks.

The first bit will be hard, but sure you'll have a system/strategies in place, and as you adapt to the changes it will get easier.
Try to get your son to help with the little one, its surprising what they are capable of. Get him to play teacher, and pass on what he knows. He could also teach him to play different games, incl card. Patience is a good one, if your son needs to learn he can watch a Youtube or google, may take a while for the young one to pick up, but a good end goal. There's lots of creative ideas they'd both enjoy- draw circles and create pictures Draw squares and create patterns, look at tone and shade. Cross hatching is fun and creative, and taking a pencil for a walk. Good luck!

My friend is a teaching assistant, she had to report a case of horrendous child abuse to the headteacher and social services were called in. These things are noticed by spending time with the children everyday. Spending just one day a week at school would mean so many neglected children wouldn’t get the help they need, let alone an education, and a lot of them survive on that one meal a day they’re given. It’s not just about the hard work that the teachers put into the job (as superbly detailed by another commenter) but they are the children’s protection and voice when they’re too beaten and scared to speak out. So many more children would not be here because their parents would have taken it too far. There’s many documentaries about these cases, and there’s one on Netflix right now-

Sorry but the system is wrong and needs a major overhaul. I come from a farming background and families like these are close, children were an investment and as soon as they were able they helped on the farm. Where’s this going you may ask... well farmers children are still helping on the farms but have a better education now because they learn how to find information themselves at an early age and apply it.
I believe the system is too soft and parents abuse this knowing that when they have a baby they can soon put them into childcare and then use schools as a nurser. They can then say that it’s all the schools fault when their child doesn’t learn. These children that are neglected are the ones who often disrupt classes.
If people want to bring a child into this world they would think much harder before becoming parents if they thought they would actually have to do some real work and educate them.
So I still believe one day at school per week would be quite adequate.
If online work was not being done or signs of abuse spotted during PE then the child’s parents would be dealt with promptly.
