4. May I teach my child at home?
You do not usually need permission to teach your child at home. However, if you want to teach your child at home, and they are of compulsory school age and registered at a school, you should first write to the school to tell it, and to ask it to remove your child's name from the register. The school must then let the LEA know of this within two school weeks. You only need permission to take your child off the school register if they go to a special school arranged by the LEA.
You don't need special qualifications to teach your child at home, and you don't have to follow the national curriculum. However, you must make sure that your child is educated suitably for their age and ability and for any special educational needs they may have. If the local education authority does not think you are doing this, they might send you a school attendance order (see 'When does my child have to go to school?')
