We are here to support you
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 in your current placement 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, you should first consult your SENCO to discuss the reasons why you feel this is a necessary step for your son or daughter. 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 and we would be happy to explain how we can help.
We specialise in supporting the parents of children with ASD, PDA or EDA diagnosis to find the best placement.

3. 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 be in control.
The first month of Home Education will seem daunting and many parents have wobbles about whether they 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.
