To ask Her Majesty's Government when they will respond to the consultation on out-of-school education settings which closed in January 2016; and whether they propose to introduce provisions that would require such settings to (1) register, and (2) be subject to risk-based inspections.
To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the impact that requiring out-of-school settings to (1) register, and (2) be subject to risk-based inspections, would have on addressing the existence of illegal unregistered schools.
The Government published a Counter Extremism Strategy in 2015, which set out plans to introduce a new system of oversight for out-of-school education settings – such as supplementary schools, tuition centres and madrassahs. To learn more about these settings, and the potential scope and impact of any regulatory system, the department issued a call for evidence. We will make an announcement about the outcome in due course.
