The EHE officer contacts a wide range of appropriate agencies to identify any potential risks to children whose parents do not engage.

The designated teacher is in contact with all of the families of children who are electively home educated and carries out regular and comprehensive reviews to track each child’s progress. A new Fair Access panel ensures that school placements are found quickly and children experience smooth transitions. 


Overall grade Requires Improvement

LEICESTER CITY  06/09/17                                                                                                         At the time of the inspection, increasingly high numbers of children were being home educated. A number of families that have chosen not to engage with the local authority have appropriate risk assessments in place to monitor children’s welfare. For the majority of children who are home educated, home educators are in touch with the local authority and receive a range of useful information, advice and support.
