FAQ CYMRU (WALES)

This information is of use to those living in Wales.
Care, and a degree of caution, should be exercised by families in Wales when using advice primarily intended for England.

Education and related legislation like that governing social care and health are all devolved powers in wales. While the fundamental law governing home education in Wales remain the same as those in England, as laid out in the Education act 1996, some differences begun to develop in terms of practice and particularly where families encounter social services and welfare professionals since the legislation on welfare and well being has changed significantly, as has legislation concerning SEN children and their families.

Differences between England and Wales will continue to change and are likely to change significantly in 2018 when new legislation is likely to come into force.

Some guidance and legislation to consider are:

EHE Guidelines (last updated 22 March 2016)

EOTAS guidelines (updated 18 March 2016) (see particularly section 6).

Current SEN Code of practice

Access to Education and Support for Children and Young People with Medical Needs
