HE Sites/ Info

Education is compulsory, schooling is not

Is home education Legal?

Yes, HE is legal in all parts of the UK and always has been. In England and Wales Home education is given equal status with schools under section 7 of the 1996 education act which says:

The parent of every child of compulsory school age shall cause him to receive efficient full time education suitable a) to his age ability and aptitude, and b) any special educational needs he may have, either by attendance at a school or otherwise.

Where “otherwise” refers to the right to home educate your child
