Please note that due to revised arrangements in place due to COVID-19, the Home Education Unit (HEU) requires your report submission via
email rather than post.
The Home Education Unit may also communicate with you via email at this time about your child’s registration. Please ensure the email address on the Unit’s records is current and is regularly monitored.
If you do send by post, please be aware that for various reasons it may not be received for some time.
When emailing the report, please note the following:
Confirmation of report receipt will continue to be via email—this may take a number of days. If you do not receive confirmation of report receipt within 5 working days, please contact the HEU.
For home education registration to remain current, parents must continue to comply with the standard conditions of registration which include the submission of an annual written report on your child's education progress along with the
Reporting for registration for home education (DOC, 114KB) form.
