The Context and Issues
Following the Badman review of home education the Government announced a range of support measures for children educated at home as well as proposals, contained within the Children, Schools and Families Bill, to introduce a national registration scheme. This Westminster Briefing will give delegates the opportunity to consider the key issues facing policy makers, local authority staff and home educators as they try to reach consensus on a better way forward for children who are educated at home.
