Data Sharing on Elective Home Education

We're waiting for Andrew Brown to read a recent response and update the status.

Dear Kent County Council,

Department for Education recently published guidelines for Local Authorities on Elective Home Education here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publicatio...

Paragraph 4.4 states that "Some local authorities already actively encourage referrals from doctors and hospitals of children whom there is reason to think may be home educated.” DfE cannot tell me which Local Authorities have such agreements in place already.

Under FOIA, please could you state if you have any such data sharing agreements with medical bodies on home education or if you ”actively encourage referrals”? If so, please may I have a copy of the agreement or similar materials.

Also, please could you supply any correspondence you have had with Department for Education on the above guidelines?

Thank you.

Yours faithfully,

Andrew Brown
