Paris Fury has revealed that her two eldest children won’t be returning to school and will be homeschooled as per Traveller tradition.
She explained: “Tomorrow will be the first day all four little ones are in school/nursery and the big two with a tutor for homeschool. Roll on Friday.”
Paris, who is also mum to Prince Tyson II, seven; Valencia Amber, 5; Prince Adonis Amaziah, four; and Athena, two, explained more about the Traveller’s tradition in a recent interview.
"We finish school at primary age, which is the traditional Traveller way,” she said. “We've just brought the tradition into the 21st century. Venezuela wanted to leave school and all her [Traveller] friends were leaving.
"Her tutor is gonna keep her up to date with all of her tests. She will also be having piano lessons."
Paris has previously explained the family’s decision to homeschool Venezuela, who left school at 11, on an episode of Loose Women last year.
Paris said: “It’s nothing new to us. It’s what our culture, our race of people as gypsies and Travellers, have always done.
"We gave Venezuela the option - do you want to go to high school or be homeschooled?
"I had such a bad backlash, ‘you’ve took away her chances for this, her chance for that?’
"I haven’t took away her advantages because she will sit her levels and go through the full extent of schooling.
"When she is 15 and 16, if she wants to go into further learning, she can."
She went on: "I’ve told my girl, she can do everything.
"She’ll keep up to date with her studies and then when it comes to that time.
"People just look at it like ‘you’ve taken her out of school’, but that’s not the case.”
Paris also insisted that - thanks to her tutor - the teen is ‘going great’.
"I can’t take full credit,” she continued. “She does have a tutor.
"Somebody comes in weekly and they do all her work, and keep her up to date with the standards she is meant to do. It’s going great."
