P-05-922 Withdraw the proposed home education guidance

This petition was submitted by Wendy Charles-Warner having collected a total of 5,447 signatures.


Text of Petition                       

We call upon the National Assembly for Wales to urge the Welsh Government to withdraw the proposed guidance for home education.


Additional Information

​The Welsh Assembly Government has issued prospective guidance for home education. This mandates that home educating parents must meet with their local authority and allow their children to be interviewed by the local authority. We have received specialist legal advice which claims that the guidance is unlawful and petitioners ask that the guidance be withdrawn to be reconsidered in light of that advice.
