Educating your child at home


You can choose to teach your child at home for: 

  • a fixed period
  • a phase of education (for example, primary or secondary)
  • your child's full education

This is known as home schooling, or 'elective home education'.

For ideas and guidance on how to get started with subjects you can teach at home, see subjects to teach.

For more information about resources that can help you with educating your child at home, see Resources, guidance and advice for Elective Home Education.
