The statutory guidance on Elective Home Education, has been developed to support local authorities in effectively discharging their duties in relation to home educated children.

The statutory guidance helps to ensure that all children are supported to access the universal services and benefits normally available to children and young people in mainstream education. 

It also helps clarify existing requirements in law and the respective responsibilities upon parents and local authorities to ensure consistency of practice for all children irrespective of how they receive their education.

The guidance has been developed following online consultation and engagement with a range of stakeholders, including home educated children and families.
