Home education or homeschooling is where parents choose to education their child at home. Parents must ensure their children receive a suitable education.

Whilst most parents choose to use schools, it is the legal right of parents to educate their children at home if they wish and we will co-operate with those parents who make this choice.

Where parents or carers are considering home education for their child:

  • either before they start any schooling (but are approaching statutory age); or
  • as an alternative to the existing school a child is already attending:

we will provide a home visit by a family outreach worker to ensure the family are aware of the processes, any requirements and what guidance or resources are available to support them.
