Welcome to the EO website
Though education is compulsory in the UK for children between the ages of five and sixteen, school is not. Many families prefer to educate their children otherwise than at school, and it is their right under UK law to do so. Home educating families do not have to follow the National Curriculum and there is no single 'right' way to educate a child at home.
Contact details for all EO postholders appear on the 'Contact' page - but if you need us in a hurry, here are our two main numbers:
For all general enquiries about home education and starting to home educate, please call the Helpline in the first instance.
The lines are staffed entirely by volunteers, who may sometimes not be available when you call. Please leave a message, and we will call you back as soon as possible.
If you have questions that aren't answered here, please email us using the form on the 'Contact' page or ring the helpline number.
If you find this site helpful, please consider becoming a member of EO and helping to support our work: we are a registered charity, funded entirely from members' subscriptions.
