Elective home education (home schooling)

In England, education is compulsory, but school is not. As a council, we manage and work with services to support all local children and young people in education and their families, whether learning in school or at home. The pages below offer advice and resources for families who have chosen elective home education (or home schooling), or are considering this option. Get in touch with our Elective Home Education team, to discover the full range of support on offer.
