InterHigh - Informing LA's about families home educating when registering with them.

I have been informed by InterHigh that they continue to routinely pass families private information to Local Authorities, regardless of their acceptance that home education does not constitute a safeguarding concern. Their statement says:

“we will proactively contact Local Authorities during the registration of a new pupil to ensure the safety of pupils” and we “will ensure that the Local Authority is aware that a pupil is being home educated.”

The InterHigh statement then goes on to say

"we know that there is no correlation between home education and safeguarding risk."

Any family considering using InterHigh services should consider the implications of this statement very carefully.

LG Ombudsman rules against routine visits

The Local Government Ombudsman ruled that councils must be clear with parents of home educated children whether a home visit is routine or triggered by concerns following Leicester City's attempt to initiate actions based on anticipating, future government proposals currently being considered.

Home Education - a Human Right

"The respect of parent's freedom to educate their children according to their vision of what education should be has been part of international human rights standards since their very emergence."

(The Special Rapporteur to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights 8th April 1999)

Parents are responsible for the education of their offspring regardless of whether they are in school or out of it. In law the right to an education is an obligatory right, it may neither be denied to, nor refused by, a child.

Thus since children may not refuse education and there is no academic consensus on what constitutes an effective education, we believe that the state must be flexible in defining what a 'suitable' education is.

While the law expresses the right to home educate as a parental right, it is my belief that, in the same way that young people have the right to decide upon medical procedures, a specific education should not be imposed upon them. This is not only right in principle but in practice, since intrinsically motivated learning will most readily "achieve that which it sets out to achieve". Learning cannot be imposed.
