Elective Home Education (EHE) is the term used to describe a parent’s decision to educate their child from home, instead of sending them to school.
EHE is different to home tuition or education provided by a local authority other than at a school.
Rutland County Council’s Elective Home Education Guidance aims to support parents, schools and other agencies with an interest in elective home education.
Flexi-schooling provides children with a full time education although not all of it will occur in school. It can be a temporary or permanent arrangement and may be requested for a wide variety of reasons.
