Flexi-schooling is the arrangement whereby pupils are partly educated in school and partly home educated. Providing that the arrangements followed the guidelines published in the DfE document 'Elective Home Education' (paragraph 5.6) A change was made to this in March. An amendment to para 5.6 states that the Government does not believe that the 'hybrid arrangement' is 'adequately provided for in law.' Initial feedback from members whose schools operate such a system suggest that local authorities were unaware of the change.
