Educating your child at home

As a parent you can chose to educate your child at home. Our elective home education leaflet (PDF) gives advice on what to consider, what is involved in educating your child at home, the support available and how to go about it. If your child has a special educational need or disability, has a statement and goes to a mainstream school, the same procedures for withdrawing them will apply. If your child is at a special school, however, we do need to give our consent before their name can be removed from the special school's register.
