Scottish Government: Consultation on revised national guidance on child protection



Originally announced as ending 30 June, it looks like this consultation goes on till 17 September.

Heavily GIRFEC orientated.

Home-educated children are specifically mentioned as being in Paragraph 582 (a subsection of "Children who are Missing").

"• Home-educated children – A child may be unknown to services as a result of their removal from mainstream education."

- which is interesting as it doesn't cover children who were never in so-called mainstream education, besides the idea of home-education not being mainstream being rather pejorative.

Despite this, Schoolhouse are not listed among the consultees.

Kind regards
