There are over 60,000 families Home Educating in the United Kingdom
It’s vital that parents considering Home Education, understands the implications of de-registering a child from school. By doing so, you lose your place at your school and will become financially responsible for your child’s education.
If your child is Year 9 or above, you should start to think about whether you would like to register for GCSE exams or take a different route. All will have financial implications.
If you are considering de-registering a child with an EHCP plan, you should first consult your school SENCO and check that an alternative provision placement or home tutoring is not an option. Education Boutique are registered as an alternative provision provider with a number of local authorities and schools.

The Benefits Of Home Education
The most commonly reported benefit of Home Education comes from the self paced and self directed nature. Quite simply, whatever is important to your family, can be built into the learning programme. You will feel in control.
We are going to be totally honest, the first month of Home Ed will seem daunting and you will have frequent wobbles about whether you are doing the right thing. Therefore, we recommend making a list of reasons why you are de-registering, at the time of doing so. This will allow you to remember how far you have come.
Don’t worry about the social side of things either, there are a multitude of ways that you can ensure that your child keeps in contact with friends and integrates into local Home Ed Activities. We would be happy to help you with our Home Education Planning Meetings.
