SEND TO THE SCHOOL ONLY
Dear (Head’s name)
Re – Name of child . Date of birth.
It is after very careful consideration and discussion that we have now decided to take full responsibility for providing for our son/daughter’s education by Home Educating them in accordance with section 7 of the 1996 Education Act.
We therefore instruct school to delete (child’s name) from the school register immediately, in accordance with Regulation 8(1) of the Education (Pupil Registration) Regulations 2006.
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.
We are aware that the government currently recommends schools offer a meeting before acting on an instruction of deregistration. This is due to COVID, and families deregistering to stop the child needing to attend during the pandemic. However, this is not the reason we are choosing to home educate, therefore a meeting with you is not necessary. The deregistration should be actioned with immediate effect.
