Additional Needs

Parents have the same right to decide how their child should be educated even if their child has additional needs. There is no difference in how you remove your child’s name from the school register if you wish to home educate and your child is currently at a state school. If your child has never attended school, there is no need to inform anyone of your intentions.

Parents can choose to home educate, send their child to school or flex-school their child. As with all education, the education has to be suitable to age, ability and aptitude. The following organisation can be useful for providing information for parents of children with additional needs.
