Elective home education

Deciding to home educate

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

Once 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 school place. You will have full responsibility for your child’s education. This means you'll have to cover the cost of any exams, tutors, resources etc.
