Elective home education
Support for schools
The Education Performance and Inclusion team offer support and guidance to schools and families and all relevant agencies on issues relating to Elective Home Education (EHE).
We believe that parents should have the opportunity to make well-informed choices about their child's education. For that reason, we provide written information and advice about elective home education for parents. We are committed to building trusting, positive relationships with parents.

Support for parents considering home education
If parents of children at your school are considering EHE, please give them our contact details or ask if their details may be passed to us. We will then contact the family to discuss their plans and to offer support.
Information for parents including a parent plan can be found on the GCC website: Educating a child at home.
If a parent is considering or has already decided to home educate a child who has a Child Protection Plan, the designated teacher for CP at the school must notify Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children Board immediately: 01452 583636
