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. Our reason for doing so is that Home Educating will allow us more flexibility/allow X to follow their interests more CHOOSE ONE OF THESE OR GIVE ANOTHER POSITIVE REASON FOR YOUR CHOICE
We therefore instruct school to delete [child’s name] from the school register with immediate effect, in accordance with Regulation 8(1)(d) of the Education (Pupil Registration) Regulations Wales 2010.
We are aware that Local Authorities suggest that they and school could meet with the parent to discuss this decision however we are confident and happy to be choosing Home Education and are not in need of a meeting. We are fully conversant with the 2023 EHE guidance for Wales, we are fully aware and prepared to take full legal and financial responsibility for the educational provision.
Our request should be actioned with immediate effect.
There is a government consultation about proposed new EHE (England) guidance. We will be producing a guide ASAP to help you respond, so no need to rush in.
For now, have a read, BUT DO NOT PANIC ABOUT THE PROPOSED CHANGES:
