Home Education


The inquiry will seek to understand the extent to which current arrangements provide sufficient support for home educated children to access efficient, full-time and suitable education, and establish what further measures may be necessary in order to facilitate this.

It will also explore the impact of COVID-19 on home education, and any particular needs arising from the pandemic that need to be addressed.

The deadline for making written submissions has now passed. The Committee held an oral evidence session on 24 November, with another likely to take place in early 2020.
