Elective Home Education Service

Description:

The Elective Home Education Service was established as a shared service initially across the local authorities of Knowsley, Warrington and the Wirral to provide guidance and signpost support for parents considering EHE or those already doing so.  The service has since extended to include the Cheshire West and Chester and Liverpool local authorities.

Elective Home Education is where parents or carers of a child decide to educate their child at home instead of sending them to a school.  The parent or carer will have full responsibility for providing a full time education suitable to the child’s age and ability and to any special educational needs they may have.

Parents choose to home educate for many reasons, for example; cultural, religious, philosophical, specific SEN needs.

The Elective Home Education Service website has a variety of resources which are intended to help parents who have decided to or who are considering, educating their child at home.

If you are considering home educating to avoid prosecution for non-attendance at school or because of a disagreement with school, we would advise you to contact the school directly or contact the EHE or Education Welfare Service to discuss your options.

For more information, please follow the link to visit their website or contact your local Education Authority.
