Elective home education
Support for schools
The Education Inclusion Service 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.
Our guides for parents:
If a parent is considering or has already decided to home educate a child who has a Child Protection Plan, the DSL at the school must immediately inform the child’s social worker.
In addition to notifying, in the usual way, the Local Authority’s Education Inclusion Service of a re-registration for Elective Home Education (email@example.com), Gloucestershire Safeguarding Children Board should also be informed (firstname.lastname@example.org)
