Most people choose to send their children to school to be educated, but you are legally entitled to educate your child at home.
You don't have to be a teacher, operate to a timetable or follow the national curriculum (although you're perfectly at liberty to do so if you wish).
If your child has never been to school or you are new to the area you don't have to tell us.
If your child is registered at school you will need to send a letter to the head teacher informing them that you wish to educate your child at home. We will then contact you to and ask for some basic information.
If you would like to talk to one of our Elective Home Education (EHE) support workers about your decision to home educate or you would like any further support and advice about any information on this site please contact us.
The Elective Home Education Team will be holding drop in sessions for parents and children which include an opportunity to meet one of our support workers. Please see the flyer for further information.Would you like to join an informal consultation network, and be involved in the review of the Lancashire procedures and associated paperwork relating to Elective Home Education? If you are interested please contact us by 13 May 2013.
