Home Schooling

There are numerous reasons that parents choose to home school their children. Some children require specialist attention, while others face circumstances from health to bullying that prevent them from attending a regular school.

Whatever the reason, KS Learning can help to create or implement a home schooling plan to ensure children are successfully educated outside school.

KS Learning has extensive experience supporting pupils that are home schooled with extra lessons and tutorials at its tuition centre and specific guidance on achieving GCSE and A Level qualifications.

Legal Position

Parents have the right to educate their child or children at home which is known formally as elective home education or informally home schooling. At the same time, children have the right to an education and it is the responsibility of local authorities to ensure that this is happening.

The government provides guidance for local authorities and schools about children educated at home. It makes interesting reading as it describes the rights and responsibilities of parents and children, and the responsibilities of local authorities to home schooled children. Many councils provide excellent support to parents who choose to educate at home - it is well worth contacting them.
