Changing schools can be disruptive and may not always be in your child's best interests.
We recommend that, before requesting a school transfer, you discuss your reasons for wishing to move with senior staff at your child's current school. This will give the school the opportunity to address and resolve any issues.
After speaking to staff, if you still want your child to transfer to another school, you will need to apply using our current in-year process.
During the current Covid-19 Pandemic, we are not requiring schools to put on roll any children who currently have a school place in the area. Therefore, we recommend waiting until schools re-open before parents consider making an in-year transfers request to local schools.
