Elective home education

Educating your child at home

Parents have a responsibility to make sure that their child is educated. Most children attend school for their education, but parents have the right to educate their child at home - this is called elective home education (EHE).

Educating your child at home is a big commitment and there is a lot to think about. If you are considering it our guidance below can help you make your decision.

The following brochure provides information and signposting to a wide range of services for home educators.  

All information on this page applies to residents of Kensington and Chelsea and Westminster Council.

If you would like to speak to a Home Education Officer, please call us on tel: 020 7745 6439 / 6448 or email us on: home.education@rbkc.gov.uk.
