The Welsh Government has launched a consulation to introduce monitoring and regulation on Home Education. Today, parents who educate their children at home will hold a 'Not back to school' picnic outside the Senedd to campaign against the proposals.
It is very difficult for local authorities to carry out their duties to ensure that all compulsory school age children in their area are receiving a suitable education.
It is important to make clear that these proposals are not designed toprevent children from being home educated.
The Welsh Government recognises that home education covers a great many approaches to education, from autonomous child-led learning to more formally taughtcurriculum based approaches and these proposals do not seek to changethis.
