Home education

Home education is a key aspect of parental choice and the Council respects the wish of parents who choose to educate their child at home.

Home education is a right conditional upon parents providing an efficient education suitable to the age, ability and aptitude of the child.

The council will support parents who choose to home educate by providing advice and information.  Parents are advised that the Council is required by law to make sure the education provided at home is appropriate for the child.

Information on Scottish Government guidelines around home education can be found below.
