By law all children have to receive a full time education, but it doesn’t have to be in school. 

  • Home education

    You can choose to educate your child at home if you’re willing to take on full responsibility for their education.

  • Education for ill children

    The Hospital Education Service offers teaching to children who miss school for long periods because they’re in hospital or too ill to attend school.
