Home education guidance: consultation

This consultation seeks views on the proposed updates to the home education guidance. The guidance sets out the roles and responsibilities of local authorities and parents in relation to home education.


An errata was published on 18 July 2022 as a result of changes on PDF page 3 and page 4 to section ‘How to respond’, the footnote on page 4, and corrected contact details for Education Otherwise on page 40. The changes made were to replace the previously published date with 31 August 2022 and to update contact details for the Education Otherwise organisation. The HTML and PDF have been updated to reflect these changes.
