DD is on 96.53 attendance. The intervention point at her school is 96%. Following bullying most of the year, some of it awful she has a new school for September. The council will only allow transfer if above 95% and the new school will only take if over 96% (not council)

DD has AGAIN been threatened today and I am totally fed up. If I was to submit the deregister letter Monday morning and home ed for the last month of term would they have to take her off the register from that day meaning her leaving attendance rate would be unaffected?

I refuse to let them ruin her chance of new school or take action against attendance

I don't know is the answer, but flowers for you, what a completely ridiculous situation to be in! I wouldn't worry about her current school but is it worth having a chat with the new school and/or the council and explaining the situation (I guess probably again...) Could you enlist help from DDs doctor? Does she have a counsellor or similar who could stand up for her? This obsession with attendance at seemingly any cost is absolutely ludicrous.

Yes new head already knows story. Some of it resulted in dd reporting to a police officer and eventual expulsion of a pupil. I have new heads email so going to contact them.

I had a chat with LA too about it at the time of the major stuff they had no issue with me removing her. In fact they were horrified at schools lack of initial reaction to the worst incident.
