Flexischooling is part-time attendance at school. The exact pattern of a child’s attendance at school is a matter for the parents and school to agree. The child is fully registered at the school and attracts full-time funding for the school concerned. The child is subject to the national curriculum and all its attendant requirements. There is no automatic right to flexischooling, it is purely at the discretion of the school’s governing body (who may delegate the decision to the headteacher). The situation is different for private schools.
