Do home school children count in SATs figures?

    As per title.

    Supposing said child leaves next week.

    I wouldn't have thought so, because they won't be in school during SATS.

    Have they been deregistered? If they have been entered then I would have thought they will be marked as absent and would probably count, not sure just my thoughts.

    I am pretty sure that if the child leaves next week and is removed from roll they will not count. They will not count if they are removed from roll right up to SATS. Just like a child would not count if they moved school on the Friday before SATS to another school.

    One they're off roll, I'm sure they won't count. Not sure how long it takes for a child to be removed from the roll. As other posters have said, you would also need to deregister the child from SATS.

    If they are being home-schooled but they are still on your roll, you have a legal issue (unless school is providing the education in the child's home).

    If they are not on your roll, they don't exist as far as you're concerned.

    I think that, if they leave after being registered for SATS but do not sit the tests as they are then being home educated and are off your roll, they will appear in the initial results analysis but will be removed from the verified results.

    If they’re not on your roll, then they won’t count.
