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.
