UIN HL3841, tabled on 4 December 2017

To ask Her Majesty's Government how many pupils in the last academic year were taken out of school to be home-schooled.

The department does not collect information on the number of children that are home educated. Parents are not under any duty to register with their local council when they home educate and so there is no reliable basis on which to collect statistics.
