Dear Head's name

Dear sir/madam

I am writing to you today to confirm my earlier letter of de-registration for my child name with the purpose of educating him at home in accordance with section 7 of the Education Act 1996.

In law, de-registration from a school in England, which is not a special school, is to be performed upon written request to the proprietor of the school by the parent.

Failure to do so is a criminal offence. Whether or not the child has an SEN has no bearing on the process.

You will find the relevant legal framework in the Education (Pupil Registration) Regulation 2016 particularly section 8(1)(d).

Since deregistration has been unlawfully denied, it follows that any attempt to fine the parents for the child’s nonattendance is unenforceable.

I would be grateful if you would confirm to me that this has indeed happened according to my wishes.

I would also be grateful if any future communication is limited to written communication to this address.

Yours sincerely
