Elective home education is the term used to describe parents' decisions to provide education for their children at home instead of sending them to school. We recognise that parents may choose home education for a variety of reasons. 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, called Elective Home Education (EHE).

Educating your child at home is a big commitment and there's a lot to think about, therefore our website offers advice, support and guidance to support this decision.
