Thank you for your request which I received on 26 May 2021. You asked for:
An FOI request relating to home education in Wales.
Please could you tell me the latest figures of students educated through home schooling in Wales?
Please could you also provide a breakdown of gender and the regions of Wales this applies to.
The information you requested is enclosed.
- Please could you tell me the latest figures of students educated through home schooling in Wales?
RESPONSE - This information is publicly available from the attached link (Pupils educated other than at school: September 2020 to August 2021).
- Please could you also provide a breakdown of gender and the regions of Wales this applies to.
RESPONSE - The information supplied to the Welsh Government does not provide a breakdown of gender by regions in Wales. All home education data is available from Data Cymru.
Data Cymru can be contacted by emailing Suzanne.Draper@data.cymru regarding the information collected/ available regarding home schooling.
If you are dissatisfied with the Welsh Government’s handling of your request, you can ask for an internal review within 40 working days of the date of this response. Requests for an internal review should be addressed to the Welsh Government’s Freedom of Information Officer at:
Information Rights Unit,
or Email: Freedom.email@example.com
Please remember to quote the ATISN reference number above.
You also have the right to complain to the Information Commissioner. The Information Commissioner can be contacted at: Information Commissioner’s Office,
However, please note that the Commissioner will not normally investigate a complaint until it has been through our own internal review process.
