Is my family eligible for PLACE?

Currently (May 2014) families who live within an approximate 25-mile radius of Bedford and who are able to access regular PLACE provisions can apply to register.  Youngsters are eligible for registration from the age of four years up to completion of GCSEs in Year 11 at the age of 16. Prospective families need to ensure that their youngsters are on their own home local authority’s EHE (elective home-education) register prior to making application to PLACE. All EHE PLACE youngsters are “dual registered” with their own home LA and with the PLACE Programme.
