Children not in school consultation – open until 24 June 2019

The Department for Education are seeking views on a local authority registration system for children who do not attend state-funded or registered independent schools.

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.

The deadline for responses is 24 June 2019.

Take part in the consultation.
