How much notice to local authority

Hi there,

I am not new to home ed. I took my son out of school for 4 years until he decided he wanted to go back. Our circumstances and my poor health did not allow us to home ed our 7 year old daughter as we had planned and so she was enrolled into Primary School.

Thankfully my health has improved and although our DD initially enjoyed school she has been consistently asking to be home educated. We are of course delighted but still nervous. My question is how much notice do i need to give the council about withdrawing my daughter and my intention to home ed.

I have already drawn up our Education Philosophy and letter to withdraw. When I took my son out it was easy because it coincided with the end of the school year. I am in East Renfrewshire.

Many thanks and I look forward to returning to the forum regularly :)

Susan
