The number of children in Jersey that are educated other than at school (EOTAS) is outlined, and broken down by year, in a previous Freedom of Information (FOI) request and is therefore exempt under Article 23 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) Law 2011. The previous response is available on www.Gov.je at the following link:
Home Schooled FOI
|2016 to 2017||0.3% |
|2015 to 2016||0.3%|
|2014 to 2015||0.3%|
|2013 to 2014||0.2%|

Please note that due to the small numbers of students in the years preceding 2012 to 2013 and the likelihood of being able to identify the individuals, Article 25 of the Freedom of Information (Jersey) 2011 Law has been applied to part of request D.
The number of children with EOTAS status has been determined during the summer term of each academic year.
