You'll be financially responsible for providing your child with a suitable education - there is no funding for home education.
You'll need to take into account the cost of:
- Books and study materials
- Educational apps
- Attending home education groups and activities
- Exam entry fees
- Tutors if you choose to use employ one
Teaching and education
You must be able to provide a suitable, full time education and take into account your child's ability, age and any special educational needs.
You'll need to think about teaching your child. You don't have to be a qualified teacher and you don't have to follow the national curriculum.
Education can happen at any time of the day or week. If you have to work then you will need to think about how this would work for you and your family.
Long term plans
If you would like your child to return to school at some point it is useful to use the National Curriculum as a guide.
If you would like your child to go onto Further Education then you should consider the importance of sitting Maths and English GCSEs.
The Home Education Officer is able to offer advice on suitable exam boards and local centres which allow private candidates
