In-year admissions and how to apply, transfer child between schools, apply for more than one school and if the application is unsuccessful.
What are in-year admissions and how do I apply?
In-year admissions are when applications for school places are made during the school year, outside the normal admissions round, normally when parents want their child to transfer between schools or when a family moves to a different area.
If you want to make an in-year application you will have to apply to the local authority responsible for the area where you live. If you live in the East Riding of Yorkshire, you must submit the below application form to apply for all state funded schools from reception to Year 11.
You may find it beneficial to download the Adobe Reader app to your device (rather than a generic PDF reader), if you don't already have it, as this will help to you complete the interactive PDF form.
I would like to transfer my child between schools, how do I make an application?
If you want your child to transfer between schools in the same year group, you should first discuss the matter with your child’s current school’s class teacher or headteacher as it may be possible to resolve any problems they are having without disrupting your child’s education.
If, after discussing the matter with the headteacher, you still want to transfer to another school, you must use an application form from the local authority responsible for the area where you live.
Unless there are exceptional circumstances, if the move to the new school is approved, it will normally take place at the start of a new term. If the application is dealt with close to the end of the term, the child will not be able to start at the new school until the following half term.
I am moving house. How do I transfer my child to a new school?
When a child moves to a new area it is important that they are found a school place as quickly as possible. All areas of the East Riding fall within a primary and secondary school’s catchment area and for most children, their catchment area school is their nearest and most suitable school. Most children in the East Riding attend their catchment area school. If you want to apply for a school place you must apply to the School Admissions Team using the In-year Admissions Application Form. You may find it beneficial to download the Adobe Reader app to your device (rather than a generic pdf reader), if you don't already have it, as this will help to you complete the interactive pdf form.
If the school has places available in the appropriate year group, you will be given a place for your child. If the school is full and cannot admit your child, the School Admissions Team will tell you about alternative schools, your right to appeal and, if you are resident in the East Riding of Yorkshire, they will offer you a place at the nearest East Riding school with a place available.
Do I have to apply for more than one school?
No. You can name up to three schools on the application form. It is up to you to decide which schools to put down on the application form. Most parents want their child to attend their catchment area school and for most children, their catchment area school is also the nearest and most appropriate school.
