The Education Act requires parents to present their children for education at school or to make arrangements for their education ‘otherwise’. This can be at home or at a private school etc. With effect from 1 September 2009, parents who educate their children at home or send them to a school other than a Department-run school are required by law to advise the Department via the Home or Private Education form, downloadable on this page.
