Moving Schools

Moving your child from one school to another school because you are dissatisfied with the current school your child is attending can be very stressful, affecting your child both socially and academically.

It is important that you consider whether a transfer is really the best option for your child.Having a conversation with your child and with staff at your child’s current school may avoid the need to transfer to another school

There are a number of reason why you might need to change your child's school:  moving house, new job, Special Education Needs,school travel issues, school preference, bullying, friendship, exclusion, teaching and school organisation or a complaint that you have not had resolved.

If you feel that you have a clear case for moving your child, please contact Derby City Council and request a In-Year Application to transfer to the school you prefer.
