In-year transfers

In general, the Local Authority does not encourage transfers between schools for reasons other than a house move. Evidence strongly indicates that they are rarely in the best educational interests of the pupil because of the disruption this would cause to their learning experience. If a parent, having considered carefully the effects that such a transfer may have, still wishes to request a transfer to a Calderdale primary school, they should complete an in-year application form available on the Calderdale website:
