Changing school will affect your child
Do think carefully about this.
Any gaps in education may have a significant impact on your child’s outcome at school.

New rules, teachers, pupils, uniforms, transport, costs, expectations.
- Changing school without moving home is a parental choice so you are not likely to be given any travel assistance.
- Schools teach subjects at different points in the year – your child may miss part of the Curriculum.
