Home Schooling

With the recent pandemic, more families are becoming used to the home schooling environment. Children might be reluctant to attend school due to factors such as bullying, or isolation from their peers because of anxiety, just as a couple of examples.

NSW legislation allows parents to choose to educate their children at home. Home schooling is provided for in Part 7, Subdivision 5 of the Education Act 1990.

Registration is a legal requirement for home educated children of compulsory school age (6-17),  but optional registration is available for children turning 5 by 31 July in the year of application, and students up to, and beyond age 18.

If you aren’t sure where to begin, our team at Worland Family Lawyers can help you with the registration for the program and getting started.
