Children Missing Education and Elective Home Education

Page last updated: 24/08/2018

The CME and EHE Team forms part of the Education Access Team within Essex County Council. This team is responsible for responding to all referrals where it appears that a child, who is believed to be resident within Essex County Council jurisdiction, is not in receipt of a suitable education, either by attendance at school or otherwise than at a school (includes home education arrangements).

Local authorities have a duty under section 436A of the Education Act 1996 to make arrangements to establish the identities of children in their area who are not registered pupils at a school and are not receiving suitable education otherwise. This duty only relates to children of compulsory school age.
