Elective home education

Deciding to home educate your child is a significant step, which will take up a considerable amount of your time, energy and resources.

When you make the decision to home educate and you have advised the school, your child will be removed from the school roll and will no longer have a place. You will have full responsibility for your child’s education including the cost of any exams, tutors, resources etc. If you wanted your child to return to mainstream education you would need to make an application to school admissions.

To help you make a decision and for advice on educating your child at home view the elective home education policy.

For more information you can also view the guidance on elective home education by the Department for Education(DfE).
