Will my child's progress be monitored?

Yes. You will monitor and report on your child's progress. If you employ a teacher for part of your child's home education they may provide you with information to use as part of your report.

For my child to remain registered do I have to provide a written report?

Yes. You are required to provide an annual written report on the educational progress of your child.

What sort of information will I need to provide in my child's report?

Ultimately, you will select, analyse and present a handful of your child's work samples for the tenth month report. How you might select this material is detailed in a reporting pack which is sent to you, each year, in the sixth month of the registration.

These samples will represent aspects of:

Why should I provide the HEU with a report about my child's educational progress?

Providing an annual written report is a standard condition of registration. Home education legislation is about respecting a parent's right to home educate their child, while recognising the right of each child to have a high-quality education. The report assists you to demonstrate that you are meeting the standard conditions of registration by providing your child with a high-quality education and that your child is making educational progress.

When is the report due?

An annual written report is supplied by the parent. The report is due each year in the tenth month of the registration.

For example, if a registration was issued on 8 June 2010, then the report and new program are due in the following year, between 8 March 2011 and by 8 April 2011.

Can I seek a time extension to provide the report?

No. There is a specific time frame in which the report and new program are due and you are required to comply, each year, in the tenth month of your child's individual registration period.

What if I don't send in a report?

The registration could be cancelled. If this were to happen you would firstly be posted a Show Cause Notice.
