If you have recently moved into Nottinghamshire or you live in Nottinghamshire and wish to transfer your child to a new school during the year and require admission to school before July 2013, you must apply for a school place through Nottinghamshire County Council even if the schools you want are outside of Nottinghamshire.
If you are thinking about changing your child's school
you should first speak to your child's head teacher. If, after a
discussion with the head teacher, you feel that a transfer is the best
option, download and complete the in-year application form [PDF].
Places are approved by the Local Authority for community
and controlled schools, and the governing body for academy, voluntary
aided and foundation schools.
If your request is refused the Local Authority will write, giving reasons for the refusal and information about how to appeal.
If you move house during the school year and you want to change your child's school, download and complete the in-year application form [PDF].
If you have recently moved house you may be requested to provide proof of residence so that the County Council can verify the address of your child.
Please note that moving into the catchment area of a school will not guarantee your child a place at that school.
If you move house within Nottinghamshire and you want your child to stay at their current school, they may do so although you may not be eligible for help with any transport costs. It is important, therefore, that you consider transport to school and check your entitlement.
