Educating your child at home
If you decide to home educate
You will first need to write to your child's school explaining your intention to withdraw your child from the school, and requesting for them to be removed from the register. You will need to state that you are taking responsibility for your child's education and that you are delivering this from home.
We will then write to you confirming that we have been informed that you are home educating and will place your child's name on our register of Elective Home Education pupils.
