Home educators reminded to register

Parents of children who are home or privately educated are reminded of the requirement to register with the Department of Education and Children (DEC).

The requirement comes under the Education (Miscellaneous Provisions) Act 2009.

It applies to those teaching their children at home or sending them to private – ie, not DEC-run – schools.

Andrew Shipley, Legal and Administration Manager, said: ‘Responsibility for ensuring a child is educated rests with parents/guardians. If they do not register the child with one of the DEC’s 37 schools, they are legally required to complete a form advising how and, if at a private school, where their child is educated. This should happen within three months of a child reaching compulsory school age, which is five.’

To obtain a registration form, visit www.gov.im/education-otherwise, ring 01624 685820 or email admin@doe.gov.im
