The process to start full-time Home Education is straight forward, you are obligated to provide a letter of de-registration to the head teacher, they must accept this and in turn, will contact the Local Authority.
Once you have de-registered, the Local Authority may well contact you to ask for a home visit regarding your plans for Home Educating.
Full guidance on the powers of the Local Authority will be covered in a later post, in the meantime please use the following links.
The link below will take you to the government website where you will be asked to put in your postcode, you will then, in turn, be directed to your Local Authority website section for Home Educating.

Home Education is on the increase, there’s no need to feel isolated, lots of forums, support groups, resources and Home Education providers. It’s an exciting time to home Educate.
