I opened the Yorkshire and the Humber Regional Conference on Elective Home Education this morning at Blenheim...

It was great to see some old colleagues who are working in this vital area. My colleague Brian Hogg has done a brilliant job and, with his colleagues Christine Spurr and Norma Leigh, created a regional centre of excellence. Brian and colleagues have been working closely with talented colleagues from the Education Welfare Service and the Travellers Education Service to ensure that all parents and carers educating their children at home are supported and monitored to ensure that the children receive 'efficient, suitable and fulltime education'.

I hope that we can create a learning network around this aspect of our work, sharing ideas and learning together.
