Schools Bill

Volume 718: debated on Wednesday 13 July 2022

The petition of residents of the constituency of Staffordshire Moorlands,

Declares that the petitioners reject the imposition of an expensive, disproportionate, invasive and ill-judged registration and monitoring system for home educated children, which undermines the long-standing statutory recognition of the primacy of parents in determining the education of their children.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons remove parts 3 and 4 of the Schools Bill and urges the Government urgently to conduct proper independent research into the outcomes of home educated children and further, that the Government provide tangible support for home educating families including in the provision of access to examinations.

And the petitioners reman, etc. —[Presented by Karen Bradley .]
