Information on In-year Transfers

A move to a different school at any time other than admission to reception, transfer to junior or transfer to secondary is known as an ‘in-year transfer’. This could be a move between Norfolk schools or a move to a Norfolk school from a school in a different area.

Norfolk County Council organise in-year school transfers and admissions. Please see the Norfolk County Council ‘Moving schools during the school year’ webpage here https://www.norfolk.gov.uk/education-and-learning/schools/school-admissions/moving-schools


If you want to transfer to a school that is not in Norfolk, you will need to contact your new local authority to ask about their admissions process. Find your new local authority using the Government’s local council finder here https://www.gov.uk/find-local-council


Under no circumstances should you withdraw your child from their current school before an alternative school place has been allocated.
