Home Education in the UK

If you are considering educating your child at home, there are few things that you need to know.

Home Educating your child

Some parents choose home educating their children for a variety of reasons. Your Local Authority (LA) have the duty to support the right of parents to educate their children at home, your child MUST be educated, but this doesn’t mean they have to go to school.

If you want to educate your child at home you should inform the headteacher of your child’s school who should then inform your Local Authority. If your child has never attended school or you do not intend for your child to be enrolled in a school, it would be helpful if you inform your Local Authority of your decision to educate your child at home. If you are not sure who you need to speak to, you can can contact us and we will help you find the right person in your local area to speak to.

 

What are your home education responsibilities?

Parents have a right to educate their children at home providing that they fulfil the requirements of Section 7 of the Education Act, 1996 which places a duty on the parents of every child of compulsory school age to cause him or her to receive efficient full-time education suitable to their age, ability and aptitude, and to any special educational needs that they may have, either by regular attendance at school or otherwise.

The phrase “full time” can be interpreted differently, since a child’s education at home is often formulated on an individual basis. You should consider the need for any young person to have formal qualifications for any future role in life. LearnOnline offers a range of GCSE and A level qualifications that can be studied from home, helping you to ensure that your child achieves qualifications that will help them with their future.
