HOW TO FO ABOUT EDUCATING YOUR CHILD YOUR WAY - HOME EDUCATION
If your child is currently registered at school, a de registration letter must be sent to the school.
A sample letter can be found at www.education-otherwise.org/Legal/Dereg_E&W.pdf.
The school is then required bylaw to remove the child`s name form the register and to notify thelocal authority.
Join an organisation such as Education Otherwise, www.education-otherwise.org/join.htm to find out about home education ans make contact with others in your area who are doing the same thing.
Take time out to get to know how your child learns, what interests them, what motivates them. Decide on the method of home education that suits you - www.education-otherwise.org/how.htm explains some of the most common ways.
If your child has never been to school ans you make your decision before they reach compulsory school age, then you have no legal requirments to notify anyone of your decision.
