If your child is registered at a school you should write to the school's proprietor or Headteacher, saying that you are now educating your child at home, and you wish your child's name to be removed from the admission register. You could quote the regulation, 9(1)(c), The Education (Pupil Registration) Regulations 1996. The proprietor must then remove the child's name from the school roll. They must also inform Children's Services that the child has been de-registered. It is important that you do de-register your child in this way, otherwise they will still be expected to attend school regularly and you are at risk of prosecution if they do not.
It is worth recognising that home education is not suitable for every young person or every family, or for all of the time. If at any time you conclude that your child's best interests would be served by going to school, Children's Services will be happy to help you find a suitable place. Please contact:
