Reform home schooling policy and increase support for home schooled children

Petition Details

Reform home schooling policy to make it fit for purpose post-pandemic, with equality for all children regardless of where they are educated.

Additional Information

This should include providing term-time food vouchers for low income families equivalent to free school meals, and provide financial assistance for resources.

During the pandemic a Government u-turn led to school children receiving school meal options when at home during lockdown. Children who are home schooled did not receive this regardless if coming from a low income family or parents subjected to furlough. This demonstrates a form of inequality for families with home schooled children. Parents of home schooled children face additional pressures to those whose children remain in mainstream education.
