I found out on June 19th that Lincolnshire Council was consulting on its home education policy because I have a google news feed set up for ‘home education’ which advises me of new web pages containing those terms.
I skimmed through the paperwork associated with the consultation straight away and noted the closing date of mid-day July 20th. I have been meaning to go back and look at it properly ever since but only just got round to it now.
Earlier this morning I googled ‘elective home education Lincolnshire’ and got to this page http://www.lincolnshire.gov.uk/elective-home-education/29467.article
I couldn’t find any mention of the consultation so I thought it must be on a different page.
I tried searching the Lincolnshire website for ‘home education’ and ‘consultation’ but still couldn’t find it.
I tried going OUT of the Lincolnshire council sit and googling ‘Lincolnshire elective home education consultation’. I found an interesting link for North Lincolnshire (different council altogether!) which I hadn’t seen before but still nothing for Lincolnshire itself
Finally I went back to my own social media posts and found the relevant link here
The consultation turns out to be under ‘Downloads’ from the main elective home education page.
