Educating your child at home

If you are considering educating your child at home, you may wish to consider some key points on home education, as well as the role we play in home education.

If you decide to home educate

You need to write to your child's school explaining your intention to withdraw your child from school and requesting your child is removed from the register. You will need to state that you are taking responsibility for your child's education and are delivering this from home.

We will then write to you confirming that we have been informed that you are home educating and will place your child's name on our register of Elective Home Education pupils.
