Data on the number of children educated at home are not collected centrally. Local authorities may collect such data, but as there is no obligation upon parents to register children as being educated at home, such data will not be complete.

Named day
Named day questions only occur in the House of Commons. The MP tabling the question specifies the date on which they should receive an answer. MPs may not table more than five named day questions on a single day.
