star this property answer text <p>Responsibility for providing a suitable full-time education for children of compulsory school age who are educated at home rests with the parents. Although local authorities do not have a power to monitor such provision on a routine basis, they are under a duty to identify children who are not receiving a suitable full-time education, and as part of that process will take appropriate steps to ensure that if a child is not being properly educated at home, a school attendance order is served. Published departmental guidance to local authorities on this matter is attached.</p><p>Children who are educated at home are not allocated a unique pupil number (UPN), although if the child had been in attendance at a state-funded school at some point before being withdrawn for home education, he or she would have been allocated a UPN at that point.</p><p> </p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Departmental guidance for local councils on elective home education, copy attached, is published at <a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/elective-home-education" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/elective-home-education</a>. It gives advice on the legal framework under which education may be provided, and the processes which are relevant for local councils seeking to identify children who may not be receiving a suitable full-time education. However, the guidance document does not set out detailed advice on educational outcomes, because parents have a substantial degree of flexibility in terms of educational content and whether to enter children for examinations. Local councils which assess the educational provision made for a child educated at home need to decide whether it meets the requirement in section 7 of the Education Act 1996, that the education must be suitable to the child’s age, ability and aptitudes, and any special educational needs.</p><p> </p><p> </p>
