Where a parent wishes their child to be admitted to school during the academic year, the headteacher will need to contact the head of the child's current school. Headteachers usually agree to allow children to move from one school to another on the first day of a new term. (ie. after the summer, after Christmas or after Easter.) If the change of school is due to moving house, or there are other exceptional circumstances, mid-term admissions can be considered.
