Home Education: Prosecutions

Question for Attorney General

UIN 158962, tabled on 29 June 2018

To ask the Attorney General, whether his Department has any figures on the number of cases taken against parents who have (a) abused, (b) radicalised and (c) trafficked their children who were in home education at that time.

The Crown Prosecution Service (CPS) does not maintain a central record of the number of defendants prosecuted for offences where they have (a) abused, (b) radicalised and (c) trafficked their children who were in home education at that time prosecuted. This information could only be obtained by manually searching CPS case files, which would incur disproportionate cost.
