Government Launches Consultation on Home Education – Call for Evidence and revised DfE Guidance

Government Launches Consultation on Home Education – Call for Evidence and revised DfE Guidance

The Department for Education (DfE) is calling for evidence to help consider whether the current arrangements for oversight of elective home education are adequate to fulfil the government’s aspiration that all children in England should receive a good education. It also seeks views on the proposed updating of departmental guidance on current arrangements for elective home education.

 As always we we solicit for your fervent prayers on this matter.  This is yet another opportunity for Seventh-day Adventists to make their voices heard, and in so doing be  witnesses for Christ.

Below, we have provided links to the actual call for evidence as well as the Government's online survey where you can respond.

We encourage you to read the call for evidence carefully first before going to complete the survey questionnaire.

When is the deadline for responding to the survey?

Midnight 2nd July 2018
