If your child's not already registered at a school you don't have to deregister or inform anyone but will the LEA still contact you to arrande home visits etc (which i know you dont have to accept) because they'll know you haven't registered or applied anywhere?

have no contact with hv but have been sent form from local authority asking me to put my preferred schools on form

They might. If they find you, and if they have the staff. They don't share data as much as you'd expect, though I suppose the new children's database (ContactPoint is it?) is intended to change that.

DD is 5.6, has never been registered at school, and nobody has asked me yet.

Look here

Depends on your LEA to some extent - they vary in approach, with some being bastards more on top than others.

thanks again, one other thing! if you move house to a different area therefore different authority do you have to tell either authority or can you just move?

also if you decided to go to a different country, what happens then? (dont know what long term plans are yet)

No you don't have to tell anyone if you move. There is no obligation for you to inform them of anything unless they actually ask.

Different countries would have their own laws - so depends where!
