Home Education of Children Report

Page Icon

The death of Dylan Seabridge raised questions about whether existing safeguarding mechanisms are sufficient for children who are home educated. In February 2017 the National Independent Safeguarding Board (NISB) commissioned Cascade, Children’s Social Care Research and Development Centre, at Cardiff University to explore the possible risks in relation to safeguarding, health and well-being of children and young people who are educated at home.

We are pleased to publish the report today and look forward to discussing the recommendations with Welsh Government Ministers. In the meantime we hope that it will prompt a debate on this important subject.
