General Certificate of Secondary Education: Home Schooling

Volume 474: debated on Tuesday 1 April 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Children, Schools and Families what percentage of children educated at home had achieved five GCSEs graded at A* to C by the age of 16 years in each year since 1997; and if he will make a statement. (196575)

The information requested is not collected centrally.

Pupils who are educated at home and for whom the local authority is financially responsible are included in the Alternative Provision Survey. However, it is not possible to separately identify these pupils as they are reported in the category “Not a school” which also includes pupils educated in community homes or units, FE colleges or voluntary sector providers.
