Dear Durham Constabulary,
On Saturday 28 April 2018, The Times newspaper reported that "Police track hundreds of ‘invisible’ home-schoolers" http://tinyurl.com/ycj5ex89
The article referred to a project devised by Detective Superintendent Victoria Fuller which had been operating in Darlington since last year.
the date on which the scheme was put into place;
the number of homes which have been visited under this project;
the total number of school-aged children in those homes who were not registered at a school;
a list of the criteria which triggered these visits;
the number of families visited which were found not to be a cause for concern and therefore no further action was taken by yourselves or the local authority.
