Hi, thank you for your question. If you are against the change in schooling then you are entitled to pursue a prohibited steps order application under a Form C100 and a £215 court fee to your local family court to attempt to stop this.
In relation to a potential agreement, in my opinion such an agreement will be difficult to enforce in relation to children matters and you would be at a disadvantage given that the children would have already changed schooling and it would be likely disruptive and difficult to transfer and enrol them back to normal schooling.
If you have any further questions regarding this please let me know. In the meantime if you found this information helpful please provide a positive rating using the stars at the top of this page. I will not be credited for answering your question without a positive rating. Thank you

A Steiner school is unlikely to be the backdoor to home schooling and if she does wish to withdraw the chidlren from the Steiner school then you can apply to the court for a Prohibited Steps Order to prevent it so that enforcement is not an issue.
The most effective (and cheapest) way forward is actually to attend Family mediation together
to work out the details of the agreement which can then be sent to the Court as a Consent order
