The Education Scotland Act 1980 states:
"It shall be the duty of the parent of every child of school age to provide sufficient education for him suitable to his age ability and aptitude either by causing him to attend a public school regularly or by other means."
Most parents choose to enrol their child/children in a local authority or independent school in order to fulfil their duty under the Act. Others opt to fulfil their duty by choosing to home educate.
If you are considering home education and would like to discuss this option, please phone, write or email us using the contact details at the bottom of this page.
Alternatively, you can use our online contact form.
If you opt to choose home education, please email or write to the Chief Education Officer who will arrange for an education officer to make contact to discuss how to progress this choice. The address is noted at the bottom of this page.
Our Guidance on Home Education is also available to refer to.
