Educating at Home

Also known as: Educating Your Child At Home, Education Otherwise Than at School, Elective Home Education, EOTAS, Home Education, Home Schooling

Service Description: Occasionally, parents prefer to arrange their child’s education ‘otherwise’ than in a school, usually providing this education at home. Parents who educate their children at home may do so for a number of reasons, possibly based on firm convictions about education. The Local Authority may make enquiries in order to establish that a suitable education is being provided.
