Parliamentary Education Committee – inquiry into home education
Instead of sending your child to a place of education, some parents are choosing to educate their child at home. This is known as home schooling, or elective home education (EHE). Doing so is a big decision and there's information on the Local Offer here to help you decide whether home schooling is right for you and your child and whether you decide to do it full or part time.
A recently launched inquiry will look at whether the current arrangements for home education give enough support for home educated children to access efficient, full-time and suitable education and what further measures may be necessary to make this work.
It will also look at how COVID-19 has impacted home education.
The Parliamentary Education Committee invites written submissions including those from parents on a range of points.
You can find more details and information on their website here.
The inquiry closes on 6th November 2020.
