Hi my name is Helen and I am BELS Elective Home Education Advisory Teacher. 

I have worked within the education sector for over 20 years as both a class teacher and as a Home Education Adviser.

I have been privileged  to work with a range of passionate professionals and parents who have supported me as my knowledge about learning and education, in all its varieties, has developed. I am now able to help families navigate through the world of EHE and support their continuous development.

I believe that learning is life long and open to everybody, regardless of learning style or direction. Learning should ignite a curiosity that not only inspires individuals but also rewards individuals with the knowledge and skills they need to reach their true potential.

I very much look forward to working with everyone involved with Elective Home Education.


I am the manager of the Elective Home Education Team at BELS, I have newly taken over and I am keen to make this team dynamic and forward thinking to promote and enjoy the wonderful work that is being carried out by home educating families.

Helen our EHE Advisory Teacher, will be your main point of contact for any specific questions relating to your education programme and is here to offer guidance should you request it.

I am excited to be part of the EHE Team for Barnet and look forward to hearing about all the fantastic work.
