To ask the Secretary of State for Education, how many pupils with an education, health and care plan are being home educated in each local authority, in academic year 2020-21.
Where a child has an education, health and care (EHC) plan this will name the specific school the child should attend. This will have been decided in consultation with the parents, the local authority, the school and any other interested parties. The specific school named on the EHC plan is required to admit the child. Therefore, the parents do not submit a list of preferred schools for where the EHC plan would apply, as they would for a place at a mainstream school.
The number of pupils with an EHC plan in elective home education at January 2020 has been published at:
Figures relating to January 2021 are scheduled to be published in May 2021.
