Parents have the primary responsibility for ensuring their children receive a suitable education.
Although most parents choose to have their children educated in school, a few parents prefer an education based at home and in the community. Whichever course you take, it is good to talk with your children and take their wishes and feelings about their education into account.
If the decision to home educate has arisen because of a disagreement with a teacher or school, and the issue has not been resolved following discussions with the headteacher or governors, please contact us before you withdraw your child from school.
Similarly, if you have been unable to secure a place at your child’s preferred school, officers will be pleased to discuss the options available to you.
