Challengin​g Every Child of Every Ability – flexischoo​ling as a solution

Dear head teacher, Ofsted are now focusing, in inspection, on the expectation that every child of every ability is appropriately challenged and makes sufficient progress and indeed the Telegraph carried a piece on this very issue only last week.

Children with SEN, and in particular those on the autistic spectrum, often have serious difficulty or may even be unable to attend mainstream school on a full time basis.  Those who are gifted may also be better served by a part time place at school giving them time to flourish in their particular talent.
Flexischooling is one simple option offering the best of mainstream schooling whilst accommodating such a child’s need for a different approach, all with the aim of developing a child’s abilities to their fullest potential whilst minimising the impact on school routine.  It is…

  • Legal.
    Funded Does not adversely affect attendance statistics.
    Looked upon with approval at inspection.
    Can be used long term, short term or for reintegration.

Arrangements for flexischooling can be made on a case by case basis, without requiring approval from the LA and are at the school’s discretion.
We would like to invite you to our Flexischooling Conference – Flexible Futures – Progressive Education in Coventry on the 2nd of November 2012, where our speakers include head teachers from three schools offering flexischooling, Dr Paul Kelly, Graham Stuart MP, and many more. There will be ample opportunity for networking, especially if you decide to come to the conference dinner on the evening before the main event.
Book by Monday 8th October to secure your place. For further information, the conference programme and details about our speakers please go to, and download a brochure or contact us directly on 01282 854719

We look forward to seeing you at our conference.
Kindest regards Alison Sauer
