Or they might get lucky and it's all easy but with the new rules of having to prove income it might get tricky.
a VERY good point!!

yes, if they aren't married she would have to prove funds for herself & the children - but that's easily done by way of a bank account with a reasonable balance & regular payments going in

Neither local taxes (and what are they, apart from IBI?) nor IBI are used to pay for state education, as far as I know.

I think some education costs are paid by local taxes. What about IVA on almost everything they buy, thats a tax too

Yes IVA is a tax - and one which all the other parents with children in state schools will be paying. But they will be expected to pay income tax and social security contributions as well, so why should this family be able to opt out of that whilst wishing to avail themselves of the same services?

agreed

once registered as residents though they would to be entitled to state education

and as resident the mother would have to do a tax return & might well have to pay some form of income tax - especially if teh income comes from some source where tax hadn't been already paid & a country where theer is no agreement

also, even if the 'provider' doesn't live here, he would likely be considered fiscally resident & end up paying tax, too (or instead)

so there's not much chance of 'escaping'
