1. Introduction

2. What choice of school do I have for my child?

3. When must my child go to school?

4. May I teach my child at home?

5. What will my child be taught at school?

6. What should I be told about my child and their progress?

7. What do I have to pay for at school?
Education must be free at all state maintained schools and in other educational organisations that the LA pays for (for example, pupil-referral units and some nursery schools).

Schools and LAs can charge you for some things. But they can't force you to pay, unless these things are in their 'charging policy'. The school or LA should give you a copy of this policy if you ask for it.

Schools may charge you for:

  • some teaching of musical instruments, unless your child is taking a national curriculum course in music;
  • out-of-school activities that are 'optional extras' and not a part of the national curriculum or religious education; and
  • any food and accommodation on school visits where children stay overnight. (If you receive Income Support or income-based Jobseeker's Allowance, you should not have to pay for this.)

A school may ask you to help pay for activities that take place during school hours, but your child cannot be left out if you do not pay.

If you receive Income Support or income-based Jobseeker's Allowance, your child should receive free school meals. All other children must pay.

Many LAs give small amounts of money to help families pay for a school uniform. However, there is no law to say they must do this.

8. What can I do if my child is being bullied?

9. What rights does the school have to discipline my child?

10. What happens if my child can´t go to school?

11. What say do I have in how the school is run?

12. What if I am not happy about my child´s school or education?

13. How can I get the right education for my child if they have special needs?
