The De-Registration Letter

This is a copy of the letter I’m sending to the school to de-register T:


21st December 2018



After careful consideration I have decided to withdraw T from school in order to take personal responsibility for his education.

Please delete his name from the register in accordance with Education (Pupil Registration) Regulation 8(1)(d) 2006, as he is now receiving education otherwise than at school. Please will you confirm receipt of this letter and inform me of the date that T’s name was removed from the register.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and T’s teachers for his learning up to now and would like to stress that this decision is not based on any negativity toward the school but solely because I believe that T will flourish more in a one to one learning environment with a broader access to other learning activities.

Yours sincerely

It still doesn’t seem quite real, and I still feeling daunted by the whole thing. I must remember the reason that I am doing this, and that reason is because I believe that T’s life will be enriched by the freedom that comes with Home Educating.
