Hi, thank you for your enquiry. Please confirm if you are in England or Wales and elaborate on your question.
Thank you for confirming. Unfortunately, this will not be an issue as your child is 16 years old and it is not against the law to leave a 16 year old alone. I refer you to the guidance here: https://www.gov.uk/law-on-leaving-your-child-home-alone
I appreciate that this may not be the answer you would have hoped for, but 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,
