Elective Home Education (EHE)

Description

Parents have to ensure their child receives efficient and suitable full time education whilst they are of compulsory school age. Most parents achieve this by sending their child to school, however, some parents decide to educate their child at home. If you decide to home educate your child you are responsible for providing your child’s education and for any costs involved. You must also satisfy the education welfare service that you are providing a good standard of education. If your child has an Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP), then you can still choose to electively home educate your child. If your child attends a mainstream school then it is advisable to inform the school of your decision. The school will inform the local authority and an officer from the education welfare service will contact you to discuss arranging for a review of your child's EHCP.

If your child attends a special school then you must write to the local authority and obtain their consent before removing your child from their school. The LA will arrange for a review of your child’s plan and will want to discuss your plan to educate your child. You may be able to access a personal budget to support you to electively home educate your child.

Flexi-schooling

Flexi-schooling is an arrangement that can be made between the parent/carer and the head teacher a school where a parent is electively home educating but would like to access mainstream education for some aspects of learning. This arrangement clearly sets out when the child is expected to attend school and when it is agreed they will be educated at home.

This approach to learning is a legal option that a parent/carer may request, but must be agreed by the head teacher of the child’s school. The child would be required to follow the National Curriculum whilst at school but not whilst being home educated. It is entirely at the head teacher and governing body’s discretion whether they accommodate a flexi-schooling arrangement. If an arrangement is agreed the school will inform the local authority and provide a flexi-schooling contract which is reviewed annually by the school with the parent/carer. The parent/carer takes full responsibility for the education taking place outside of the school. You must also satisfy the education welfare service that you are providing a good standard of education when you are home educating your child/ren.
