The request was partially successful.

Dear Merton Borough Council,

I am aware that in accordance with Education (Pupil Registration) Regulation 8(1)(d) 2006 it is necessary for parents to inform a school, in writing, if they wish to deregister their child and in that letter to give a reason for the derigistration.

Please, would you provide me with the total number of notifications, per academic year, received from schools in your local authority concerning children removed from school roll where parents have indicated that they are educating otherwise. Please would you provide figures for the following academic years:

2006 / 2007
2007 / 2008
2008 / 2009
