Educating your child at home

Every child has a right to an education, and it is the duty of the parent of every school age child to provide that education, either by sending the child to school, or by other means. Home education is a key aspect of parental choice, and is an equally valid choice alongside the option to send a child to school.

Each individual enquiry about home education, request to withdraw a child from school, or contact between a local authority and a home educating family will be dealt with fairly, consistently, timeously and accurately as possible.

Should you wish to discuss or request withdrawing your child from a South Ayrshire school, please contact,

Gary Hoey, Ian Leishman or Scott Mulholland on 01292 612602 or email
