Every child has a right to an education, and it is the duty of the parent* of every school age child to provide that education, either by sending the child to a school, or by other means such as education at home.
*the definition of a parent ‘includes guardian and any person who is liable to maintain or has parental responsibilities (within the meaning of Section 1(3) of Children (Scotland) Act 1995) in relation to, or has care of a child or young person’
