Welcome to the Cambridgeshire Home Educating Families website.

This is a mutual support network for home educating families in the Cambridgeshire area.

CHEF is a parent/carer run organisation which supports, promotes and facilitates home education in the city of Cambridge and surrounding villages.

  • For our children we hold weekly and monthly sports, drama and social activities and one-off visits and events.
  • For parents there are regular opportunities to meet for mutual support and to exchange ideas.

We are a diverse inclusive group encompassing educational philosophies from classical education to autonomous child-led learning.

We home educate for many different reasons:

  • Religious, Cultural and Ethical.
  • Because school could not meet our children’s needs, educationally, behaviourally, emotionally or medically.
  • Simply that school did not suit our children or fit our lifestyle.
