The information requested is not collected centrally.

Pupils who are educated at home and for whom the local authority is financially responsible are included in the Alternative Provision Survey. However, it is not possible to separately identify these pupils as they are reported in the category "Not a school" which also includes pupils educated in community homes or units, FE colleges or voluntary sector providers.
