Primary School in-year admission and transfers

If you wish to request admission to a Coventry Primary School, you should complete all sections of this form.

If your child is already attending a local school, then moving your child to another school is a very serious step. It is important that you consider whether a move is really the best option. If your child is experiencing difficulties at school, a transfer may not solve the problem. Talking to your child and staff at your child's present school can resolve most problems so that a move is avoided. If circumstances are complex, it will take longer to process your application. 

Where possible, your child must continue attending their current school until you are offered a new school place. Parents are responsible for ensuring that their child receives full-time education, either by regular attendance at school or otherwise (Education Act 1996, section 7). Parents who fail to ensure that their child attends regularly at the school at which they are a registered pupil, are liable to prosecution (Education Act 1996, section 444).

If your child has a Statement of Educational Needs, or an Education, Health and Care plan, this form cannot be used to apply for a school place. You must contact SEN Management Services for guidance on 024 7683 1614.

Please note:

If your child attends a COVENTRY school, you should discuss the reasons for transfer with your child's Head Teacher before submitting this form. 

Transfers only normally take place at the start of term, unless there are exceptional circumstances, such as a change of address.
