• Advice from Home Educators

    "I'd suggest not trying to do too much. Burn out can happen very quickly. The first year is hard and like lots of people, I tried to do everything. Lots of projects, every group and visit available. I was driving for hours and we weren't enjoying it all."

Dear Director of Education

 

Re – (Child’s name – date of birth – )

 

It is after very careful consideration and discussion that we have now decided to ask for consent to withdraw (child’s name) from the roll of (school name) as we wish to excercise our legal right to Home Educate them in accordance with section 30 of the Education (Scotland) Act 1980.

We have enclosed information about the proposed education plans and provision and expect that this is adequate information to support our request.

 

We therefore ask that the Local Authority consent to withdraw (child’s name).  We will ensure that our son /daughter is provided with an efficient full-time education suitable to his/her age, ability, aptitude and to any special educational needs.

 

Yours sincerely
