If you wish to transfer your child to a different school at any time (except due to moving house), you should discuss this with the Headteacher of your child’s current school. This will help them address any issues you raise, but they do not have any power to veto or obstruct your decision to move your child to Llanidloes High School.
After speaking with your child’s current Headteacher, you will need to contact the Headteacher here at Llanidloes High School and discuss the possibility of admission, explaining why you want to change schools.
You will then need to complete an ‘In-year transfer form’ which is available at the following link: https://customer.powys.gov.uk/article/1163/In-year-tranfers
If your application for transfer is approved, your child will change schools at the beginning of a term or half term. The transfer will normally be approved, as long as it doesn’t affect the provision of efficient education or the efficient use of resources and is in line with any admission procedures the school has agreed with the council.
Failure to complete each section of the application form fully, including the section for the Headteacher of the outgoing school, will result in the form being returned and will delay the process. Remember that the Headteacher of your child’s current school cannot veto or obstruct your decision to move your child to Llanidloes High School. They are required to sign the in-year transfer form if you remain convinced that a move to Llanidloes High School would benefit your child.
The school provides full access to all curriculum areas for disabled pupils. Admissions for disabled pupils are made through the school’s normal admission procedure. We welcome early contact from parents with specific access requirements so that reasonable adjustments can be made to ensure full engagement with the curriculum can be planned.
