Elective Home Education

The Education Act 1996, Section 7, states that it is the duty of parents of every child of compulsory school age to ensure that they receive efficient full time education suitable to their age, ability and aptitude and to any special educational needs they may have either by regular attendance at school or otherwise. The word “otherwise” affirms parents right to educate their child themselves instead of sending them to school.
