Waltham Forest Elective Home Education (EHE) Protocol

EHE Protocol document (PDF) aims to clarify for schools, parents, carers, guardians and related agencies, the protocol and procedures to be observed when a parent elects to home educate their child who is of compulsory school age.

The protocol sets out parents’ rights to educate their children at home, together with the legal duties and responsibilities of head teachers and the Local Authority. It also sets out the arrangements the Behaviour, Attendance and Children Missing Education (BACME) Service from the Local Authority will make in order to carry out its legal duties.
