“The Department for Education (DfE) recently published guidelines for Local Authorities on Elective Home Education here: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/elective-home-education
They state that “some Local Authorities” have agreements with doctors and medical professionals to share information regarding home education. The DfE cannot tell me which Local Authorities have such agreements.
Under the Freedom of Information Act, please could you state if you have any such data sharing agreements with doctors on home education? If so, please may I have a copy of the Agreement?
Also, please could you supply any correspondence you have had with Department for Education on the above guidelines?”
Devon County Council can confirm that it does not have any data sharing agreements with doctors or medical professionals regarding home education at the present time and does not hold any correspondence with the DfE on this matter.
