Ofsted home education quotes July August 2017

Click here for Ofsted guidance to inspectors about home education.  (Many inspection reports do not appear to follow this guidance)  These are Ofsted children’s services inspection links for July and August 2017 mentioning home education

BARNET 07/07/17                                                                                                                            The local authority keeps accurate records on the number of those children who are being home educated. From May 2016 to May 2017, the number increased by 12 to 155. The manager responsible has a clear oversight of this, and the local authority keeps in touch with all home-educated children and makes visits to most. All children receive 25 hours of learning a week, unless the child can only cope with less, due to specific medical or behavioural needs.

STOCKPORT 25/8/17 
Children who are electively home educated benefit from good support and oversight. Parents are encouraged to register with the local authority, and clear guidance is available to parents as to mutual requirements and expectations from the Parents and Schools Support Service. Families who come to the local authority’s notice are offered a home visit by the service, which makes enquiries to ensure that children are safe and assesses the quality of provision. The team continues to offer support, advice and guidance to parents while children remain educated at home. Currently, 153 pupils are educated at home.
