Christian Home Education Support Service

Verse of the day

 Welcome to CHESS

Thank you for visiting our website. We hope you find it informative.

Just posted in News about the new guidance from the Welsh Government.

We will have to watch what happens when the minister says,

"This guidance will form part of a package of measures I’m considering to support local authorities, the home educating community and alternative providers, including the potential for introducing legislation."

See here for the statement.


The Casey review. What will it mean for home educators? Are we going to be seen as intolerant?


On to some USA news, you might be interested to read here how the new administration could affect home education.

Home education, especially christian home education, is about being "radical". You stand opposed, in many ways, to what is happening in the world. Now, we know that this means you are stepping away from the "norm" and the state does not, in some ways, like that idea.

Our country, thankfully, still has certain freedoms. We must pray that, according to God's will, we can continue to have these. Let's be thankful that we know he is sovereign (Eph. 1:11).

CHESS, formerly The Home Service, was founded in 1992 by a group of parents, who were themselves involved in Christian home education in the UK, to provide help and advice for those who were treading the same road or thinking of doing so. Today, 25 years on, we continue to stand together, especially when we seem to be facing possible "persecution"!
