Ok so I'm looking for a bit of advice even though it may sound really blinking obvious I want to get it right.

We are at last in a position to move house to a much better area but are in a dilemma as what to do about DD's school. We will be moving far enough away that it will be impossible to commute so therefore will have to change schools. I know she can't go on any waiting lists until after the move and if we have to wait for a place to come up then I'm happy to homeschool short term. What I really need to know is will her current school still keep her on roll and expect attendance after the move? Or will they remove her?

As far as I'm aware, you just apply for an in-year move. It's not dealt with through the usual application round, so you don't nec have the same choice. I had a friend who moved 100 miles across the country. The family moved. The kids went to a new school.
