What Now?

Towards the end of 2023 the government put forward some possible changes to the guidance on home education. A public consultation ended on 18.1.24. The government will now consider the responses to the consultation and will publish an official statement about next steps in due course. More information about consultation principles can be found here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/consultation-principles-guidance

Meanwhile the current guidance remains in force until such time as a final new version is published. The current guidance can be found here https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/elective-home-education My web page on the guidance is here https://edyourself.org/guidance/
