From a letter from Elizabeth Truss to Graham Stuart:
"Further to our discussion about flexi-schooling, I would like to clarify the Department's position on this.
As you may be aware, we have reviewed our position on this issue. The reference in the Government's revised advice on school attendance, which was categorical that a school could not agree to a flexi-schooling arrangements, has been removed. Where parents have entered into flexi-schooling arrangements, schools may continue to offer those arrangements. Pupils should be marked absent from school during periods when they are receiving home education."
