This consultation is a follow-up to the consultation and call for evidence on elective home education held by the Department for Education in 2018.
It seeks views on proposed legislation to establish:
- a register maintained by local authorities of children not attending mainstream schools
- duties on parents and the proprietors of certain educational settings
It also consults on proposed legislation to establish a duty to support parents who educate children at home and seek support from their local authority in doing so.
