Orkney Islands Council home education policy (dated 2004, pre-dating 2007 national guidance)

From Pupil Care and Welfare link:

Home Education

Under Scottish law, parents can opt to educate their children at home if they wish. It means parents taking full responsibility for their children’s schooling, but Education Services do monitor the education they are receiving. The Home Education Policy and Guidance – October 2004 is available from the Related Downloads section. Further information on home education is available from the Scottish Government’s website.
