Croeso i gyfarfod y Pwyllgor Plant, Pobl Ifanc ac Addysg heddiw.

Welcome to this meeting of the Children, Young People, and Education Committee. 

Welcome this morning to today's meeting of the Children, Young People, and Education Committee. The public items of this meeting are being broadcast live on Senedd.tv, with some participants joining via video-conference. Just to remind Members not to use the 'raise your hand' function, but to raise your hand physically if you want to come in. The Record of Proceedings will be published as usual. The meeting is bilingual and simultaneous translation from Welsh to English is available. This morning, we have received apologies from James Evans and Laura Anne Jones. Sam Rowlands MS is subbing for Laura and Heledd Fychan will be subbing for Sioned Williams for items 5 and 6. So, welcome, Sam, this morning. 

Thank you. Are there any declarations of interest from Members? No, I can see no declarations. 

2. Papurau i'w nodi
2. Papers to note

We'll move on to the first item on our agenda, which is papers to note. There are five papers to note this morning, and these papers and the details are set out on the agenda and in the meeting papers. Are Members content to note these papers? 

It's just on paper to note 5, talking about elective home education. I'm somebody who was home educated through choice for a number of years, so I'm just interested to know where the committee—just for personal interest—is looking to take some of this work the Government is doing, and how that's going to be communicated with the Senedd.  

Thank you, Sam. So, all the papers that we have are published in public, but, for us, it's some of the work that we've been doing outside of our other committee work and our inquiry, so we are following with interest these subjects. 

Okay. So, is it—? Sorry, is there a specific piece of work coming up on elective home education that the committee's doing?  

Not at the moment, no—it's just some of the work that we're doing to just find out information that the committee has a particular interest in.
