Home Education: Finance

Volume 462: debated on Thursday 28 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Education and Skills what plans he has to fund and support children receiving home education. (145674)

The Government believe that school is the best educational setting for most children. However, we respect the right of parents to choose education at home for their children. There is no Government funding available to support home education, nor any plans to change current arrangements. On 8 May we published draft guidelines for consultation which set out how local authorities can best support home educating parents.
