Wales needs a register of home-educated pupils, says report

Wales should have a register of all children educated at home, says a report into an eight-year-old boy who died from scurvy.

Dylan Seabridge became ill at his family's isolated farmhouse in Pembrokeshire, and died in 2011.

A child practice review found that the boy had no direct contact with agencies such as doctors, nurses and teachers from the age of 13 months.

The independent review report has called for the Welsh government to introduce a compulsory register of home-taught children.

Alison Holt reports.
