Not too sure about this one to be honest but good luck with it. X

In your case since it's a private school, the school isn't obliged to tell the local authority. However, if this were a state school it would be required to inform the LA, and then the LA might or might not ask the school if there were any concerns prior to your deregistering. There isn't a nation-wide rule about it in England. For example, Birmingham asks the school to keep the child's name on the school roll for 10 days until Education Welfare has made contact with the family, irrespective of whether the school has raised any issues or not. This is not what the rules say! (Rules changed in 2006) In Durham they convene a panel which has reps from social services, SEN etc to see if anyone has raised issues prior to deregistration.
