Illegal Off-Rolling

This Guardian article reports that there are calls to fine schools for illegal off-rolling, aka illegal de-registration of a child from school.   "Illegal" in this context seems to include the exclusion of a child for insufficient reason as well as the school failing to notify the LA of a deregistration.

A fine will be yet another stick with which to beat the schooling establishment and won't actually deal with the real source of the problem which is Ofsted using poor learning theory as a way to assess schools, given that Ofsted assesses by results, when they should assess by educational provision.
