Children without education
Children can be out of school for a variety of reasons.
Your child may have been excluded from school permanently and the Local Authority may be unable to find another school place. Perhaps you are educating your child at home. Your child may be sick and unable to attend school, or your child might be subjected to bullying at school.
Education laws in England
The law states that education is obligatory for children of compulsory school age. You may educate them by sending them to a Local Authority school or make your own arrangements by paying for a private education or educating them at home.
If your child is of compulsory school age and is out of school, the Local Authority has a duty to provide suitable education for your child. If you fail to educate your child, you may be fined and prosecuted. Children can be out of school for a variety of reasons, if you do not enforce their rights with the Local Authority, the Local Authority can proceed with a prosecution.
By liaising with the Local Authority on your behalf, we can help you obtain a school place, interim educational provision for a child, an education package and home tuition. Whatever provision the Local Authority provides, it must be suitable to your child's age, ability and aptitude.
