Scottish Home Education Statutory Guidance

The above links are the definitive statutory guidance issued by the Scottish Government which sets out the respective rights and responsibilities of Local Authorities and home educators.It should be remembered that all Scottish legislation, guidance and policy are subject to the limiting provisions of the ECHR and Data Protection Act (to be superseded in May 2018 by the more stringent GDPR).

Local policies cannot be relied on to ‘get it right’ and frequently misrepresent the law. Members are encouraged to ask questions if they are unsure of any aspects of the law or guidance and to add links to local authorities’ policies and named council contacts. We can then build a picture of the good, bad and downright ugly across council areas.
