Elective Home Education (EHE)

Guidance for Schools & Colleges

Elective Home Education, often referred to as home schooling or home education, entails parents providing education for their children at home instead of sending them to school. All parents have a right to elect to home educate their child, providing they can demonstrate to the local authority that the child is in receipt of a suitable full time education, in accordance with the child's age, ability, aptitude and any special educational needs.
