To ask the Secretary of State for Education, what estimate he has made of the number of children who are being educated at home but who are not listed in the Home Education register in each South-west Authority in each of the last five years for which figures are available.
27 June 2019
The information requested is not held centrally.
Data on numbers of children educated at home or those removed from school for that purpose are not collected by the department. Consultation on proposals for the creation of a mandatory register of children not enrolled at state-funded or registered independent schools closed on 24 June 2019. If the proposals were to be brought into effect, they would make such data available.
