As if the nerves weren't frayed enough already, from the DCSF:
"As you know the consultation on home education guidelines closed on 31 July. Although we had aimed to publish a summary of the consultation results and guidelines this week, due to the large number of responses we received, this is now scheduled to take place by the end of next month. (That's end of November presumably). The consultation results will be published on the Department's e-consultation website http://www.dcsf.gov.uk/consultations.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for providing us with valuable feedback on the guidelines. "
