Lincolnshire County Council Home Education Complaint Part 2

Breath-takingly arrogant and shockingly ignorant reply from the Director of Children’s Services at Lincs County Council is attached here.

Am pondering how to deal with this, particularly with regard to their legal department’s crass re-interpretation of the law in this bit:

“”Advice from our legal services states that;
If a parent is refusing to engage, the LA must be entitled to presume that the educational provision being provided at home is not suitable unless evidence can be provided to the contrary. Elective home education associations commonly assert that a LA has no power to investigate whether the provision being made at home is suitable unless they are notified of any concerns. This is clearly unsustainable as a LA is unlikely to be able to establish such concerns unless they endeavour to investigate that provision.”
