The government is committed to safeguarding all children and protecting them from harm, including in out-of-school settings.

Following the publication of the government’s Counter Extremism Strategy in 2015, which set out plans to introduce a new system of oversight for out-of-school settings, we undertook a call for evidence to learn more about these settings and to determine the potential scope and impact of introducing a regulatory system.

As well as considering the views of those that responded to the call for evidence, we have been working with a range of stakeholders to strengthen our understanding of these settings, which vary considerably in their characteristics and the activities and education they offer.

The government has also announced that it intends to consult on revised guidance on local authorities’ home education powers, and we shall be publishing that in due course.
