Please be informed that what is written below is advice we received from the school from which we removed our daughters. None of the below is mandatory but is stated as a requirement in UK Government advice and which we were happy to follow.
1) De-registering/withdrawing your child from school.
You can teach your child at home. This is called homeschooling. Write to your headteacher. They must accept you are taking your child out of school on a full-time basis. Contact your local council/local elective home education team on email@example.com. You will be asked to send your local elective home education team the following information: Your home address; your telephone number; name of your child and your child's date of birth. Once you have provided your local elective home education team with this information, they will send you an information pack.
2) Looking to join Learn4Life?
Before you and your child joins Learn4Life we aim to establish:
That you have a clear understanding and are happy with what Learn4Life can offer you and your child(ren).
That we have informed you of everything you need to know.
That we believe we can meet your child's needs and that Learn4Life is the best place for them. We will try to accommodate the needs of any child, however, there may be some children whose needs we cannot meet, based on resources and expertise.
You can enter Learn4Life at any age between 4 and 13 years old and during any part of a term. We are now welcoming new children in all age groups.
We encourage you to visit Learn4Life for an informal chat and to meet our educators; at a time which best suits your schedule. This forms an important part of the admissions process so therefore comes highly recommended. You will be greeted by a member of staff who will chat with you and your child about how best we can support you with your learning journey and how we can best meet your child's needs. You will also be given a brief tour of our premises and see our teachers in action! Please note, if preferred, we can chat with you over the phone.
If your child has any particular special educational needs, this is when we will discuss with you any adjustments that can reasonably be made to support your child.
Your child will then be invited to join us. The first session is an important time for your child to begin building positive relationships with their future friends. This session also gives us a chance to determine your child's developmental stage.
We accept children with a wide range of abilities. We believe all children have individual needs.
If you are happy that Learn4Life is the best learning opportunity for your child, you will required to complete an application form. In all cases, applicant parents must sign and return their Learn4Life application form before their child is permitted to join.
