It sounds daunting but it isn’t! What was daunting for us was the thought he had to go to school ! You don’t have to attend school by law, but you do have to provide an education by law whether that’s sending them to school, private tuition at home, or home education by doing it yourself or any other family members and meeting things for their age, apitiude which is appropriate however you do not have to follow a routine guideline, school hours or holidays, you don’t have to follow the national curriculum either. As far as SEN special educational needs obviously none of that is appropriate as he has severe learning difficulties so we just do things suitable for him like sensory cause and effect toys, singing, music, etc etc and gong out a lot, just going out is education itself. Anyway, we weren’t happy with school as I mentioned above, we just looked up home education on google not thinking for one minute we could do that with a special needs disabled child but to our suprised we can! Basically if your child is already in school as yours is if it’s mainstream school then you just write a letter to the school headteacher saying you wish for your son to be home educated please can you deregister my son and remove him from the school registe asap. Make sure you send it registered signed for post so you have proof of it, then that’s all you do they will then write to the LA. If it’s SEN school then need permission from the LA but it’s the same as above just that you wait for the LA to contact you then they asked us to email our provision a form to fill in on what we intend to do , it’s only a provision not s given! But it show you will meet his needs as this is what you are proposing to do… they will let you know they are happy with it and usually leave you alone 6 months or so settling period then it’s just an annual review each year if you have a EHCP educational health care plan.
Is this what you meant? Which ever council you are under look up home education under your council they should give you some information.
