Katie Price shares astonishing update that son hasn't been to school in almost a year

Reality star Katie Price has confessed to fans that her youngest son has not attended school in almost a year. The former glamour model has given birth to five children: 21-year-old Harvey, 18-year-old Junior, 16-year-old Princess, Jett, nine, and eight year-old Bunny.

Katie often includes her kids in her social media posts, and they also feature in the various reality shows and documentaries she has taken part in, reports the Mirror. Due to this, fans feel a bond and affection for her kids, and often ask for updates on the children during social media Q&As.

During a recent TikTok live, Katie gave a shocking update on her youngest son Jett - revealing he has been out of school for nine months.

She explained: "Jett is good. He hasn't been to school for nine months, so he has homeschooling at the moment."

Katie now joins a list of celebrities who have decided that the best option for their children is homeschooling.

Loose Women star Stacey Solomon has been a vocal advocate for homeschooling. She says that the unusual form of teaching has been beneficial for her two eldest sons, Leighton and Zachary.

In a magazine article from 2018, Stacey said: "Before I get started, I would like to say that every child is different and therefore responds differently to methods of teaching. “Also, this wasn't a decision we made lightly. It's one we've been pondering over for a few years.

"When Zachary was halfway through Year Two he began to lose some of my favourite parts of his personality. Before that, he was often cheeky and making jokes, he never worried what people thought of him.

"He was a happy-go-lucky child, always inquisitive and wanting to know EVERYTHING about everything... He became very quiet and a little sad.

"Homeschooling has always been at the back of my mind, because whenever I am with the boys and we are out in different environments their senses heighten and their enthusiasm to learn is at its best."

When her two sons reached secondary school age, they both joined the mainstream school system.

Stacey wrote on Instagram at the time: "I've had the most amazing two years with you. Home education has been all that I imagined and so much more. It wasn’t always easy but it was always rewarding."
