Organisation Description

About the Organisation

In England, education is compulsory, but school is not. Elective home education is the term used to describe the educational provision made for children whose parents decide to educate them at home instead of sending them to school.

Parents have a right to educate their children at home and are responsible for providing an efficient, full time and suitable education taking into consideration the child’s age, ability and aptitude as well as any special educational need & disability the child may have. This is different to home tuition provided by a local authority or education provided by a local authority other than at a school.

Children whose parents elect to educate them at home are not registered at mainstream schools, special schools, independent schools, academies, Pupil Referral Units (PRUs), colleges, children’s homes with education facilities or education facilities provided by independent fostering agencies.

Some parents may choose to engage private tutors or other adults to assist them in providing a suitable education, but there is no requirement for them to do so. Learning may take place in a variety of locations, not just in the family home.
