Renfrewshire Council

Home Education

Parents/guardians are within their rights to make a request to educate their child at home
rather have them taught at one of the local authority schools.

Home education is a right conditional upon parents providing an efficient education suitable to
the age, ability and aptitude of the child.

Renfrewshire Council will support parents who choose to home educate by providing advice
and information.  Parents are advised that the Council is required by law to make sure the
education provided at home is appropriate to the child.
