If you decide to home educate
You'll 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're taking responsibility for your child's education and that you're delivering this from home.
We'll 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.
