What happens if it appears suitable education is not being provided?
Under section 437(1) of the Education Act 1996 (on Office of Public Sector Information website), the Local Authority has a duty to intervene if it appears that parents are not providing a suitable education.
A home visit will be offered with the aim of helping you overcome the difficulties within a mutually agreed timescale.
If, after three visits, the situation has not improved you should arrange for your child to return to school. Should you need help to find a school place, the Admissions Team and the Education Welfare Service will assist you.
