LGA RESPONDS TO OFSTED REPORT ON HOME EDUCATION

Responding to a report by Ofsted on their concerns families of children with special educational needs are being encouraged to educate their child at home, Cllr Judith Blake, Chair of the Local Government Association’s Children and Young People Board, said: 

“We share Ofsted’s concerns that an increasing number of families of children with complex needs are being encouraged to educate their children at home.

“We believe that the vast majority of children with SEND would benefit from a mainstream education and are therefore pleased that Ofsted are raising awareness of this practise. 

“However inspectors should go further and consider levels of mainstream inclusion when grading a school, while mainstream schools should be incentivised and rewarded to provide a more inclusive education environment for children with SEND.”
