    Read our FAQ and the legal stuff. Knowing your rights is VERY important.

    Advice from Home Educators

    "Know the law. The number of people I see on HE groups who did not know they don't have to have visits or provide evidence of work etc. is astonishing. To me, knowing what your rights are is probably the most important starting point then at least if (when) the LA/ police/ random strangers decide to push their luck you are confident in your knowledge of your rights/ responsibilities."

Flexischooling and the Government guidelines

Flexischooling

Flexischooling is not a legal right, but some schools do offer this option. You will need to discuss this with your school, and the decision lays with the headteacher on whether to allow it.

Your child will be registered as a full-time student but will not attend the school for the full-time hours. Some of their education will take place off site – often at home.

This is an arrangement that can work well for children with illnesses, or with school phobia, where parents wish to have more input into the childs education, or where the family would prefer the child not to attend full-time until they are older. Whatever the reason you are expected, by law, to ensure your child receives a full-time education.

It’s always a great idea to make contact with other families that Flexischool, we can recommend two Facebook groups for starters:
