Midyear applications are processed through the Local Authority, School Places Team. Before submitting an application to transfer schools parents/carers must ensure that everyone who qualifies as a ‘parent’ under education law agrees to the transfer. If at any stage the Council are informed that anyone who has a right to participate in decisions about your child’s education is not in agreement to a school transfer the application cannot be processed. The Local Authority cannot mediate disputes between parents. Parents must resolve disputes about transfers between themselves, legally if necessary.
