Consultation on proposals which seek to introduce a compulsory registration and monitoring scheme for children who are home educated: Consultation events 18, 26 and 30 October, 2012
Date of Event: 26/10/2012
The Welsh Government believe the current legislation surrounding elective home education has shortcomings because there is no legal requirement on the parent to tell a local authority that a child is receiving education at home. Without this requirement, it is very difficult for local authorities to carry out their duties to ensure that all compulsory school age children in their area are receiving a suitable education.
For these reasons we are proposing the introduction of a registration and monitoring scheme for home educated children. We want the scheme to promote a more supportive and constructive relationship between all home educating families and local authorities, with them working together to ensure children receive a suitable education.
A consultation seeking views on the proposals is currently open and responses are requested by 23 November 2012.
In addition, a small number of facilitated events aimed at seeking the views of children and young people will be held on:
18 October 2012 at 10:30

26 October 2012 at 10:30

30 October 2012 at 10:30
