Educating your child at home

Every child has a right to an education. It's the duty of the parent or carer of every school age child to provide that education, either by sending the child to school, or by other means. Home education is an option available to you, as a parent, and it's just as valid a choice as sending your child to school.

We deal with all enquiries about home education, as well as requests to withdraw your child from school if you decide to educate them at home. All contact between ourselves and our home educating families are dealt with as fairly and consistently as possible.

National Guidance for parents and local authorities can be found here.

If you'd like to discuss your options further, or request to withdraw your child from one of our schools, please contact us on the information below:
