Educating your child at home

Safeguarding your child

We have a responsibility to make sure children are safe and getting a suitable education. We keep a list of children being educated at home and will try to contact families throughout the year.

We will arrange suitable times to:

  • talk with the family to check contact details are correct
  • provide advice, guidance or support

If we believe a child isn't getting an appropriate education, we will contact parents to give them time to address and resolve any issues.

If issues aren't resolved, a school attendance order can be issued.

This means the child must attend a named school.
