first Ofsted reports published after new home education guidance to inspectors

2 Ofsted reports were published on June 22nd 2015, the first reports after the new home education guidance to inspectors

Ofsted published its inspection report for Brighton and Hove on June 22nd 2015.

The local authority maintains an up-to-date register of children missing school-
based education. At the time of the inspection, 246 children were on this
register. This includes 188 children who are electively home educated as well as
those who receive home tuition due to their medical needs and those presently
not on the roll of a school. The local authority has a clear definition of what
constitutes children missing education that extends beyond those without a
school place. The children missing education panel considers cases routinely
and individual action plans are put in place with a nominated professional
responsible for operational oversight.
34. Agencies demonstrate a tenacious approach in tracking children. The local
authority takes decisive action to return children to school where home
education is not meeting their needs and they are vulnerable.
