Hi Lennie


I also have some exciting news for you.  The changes to our services has been slowed and will now take a longer time to implement into schools.  The document out at the moment, which is an ‘in process’ document says that they have decided that there will be no change to the service provided to Home Education Families.  This has come about because of all the feedback that people and organisations have sent in concerning the changes.

Thanks – bye for now.


Thank you to all those who sent in feedback to the National Library. You were listened to.
