Sometimes children need to change school at a time other than starting in reception, transferring to a junior school or transferring to secondary school for the very first time. Some changes may be unavoidable, for example when you move into North Yorkshire, move house, or sometimes they occur because of difficulties at your child’s current school.
Changing schools is a big event for any child and should not be undertaken without first talking to the head teacher at your child’s current school, to try and resolve any problems.
An in-year application can be made at any time of the year as there is no closing date. Your application will be processed no more than half a term (six weeks) in advance of when a place is required. A school place will normally be allocated from the start of the next half term.
