Hello all, I'm in a bit of a pickle. Nursery admissions have come back and my youngest son has been accepted for both schools. My eldest is already at one of them but, I prefer the other one. Now when my eldest went through the nursery admissions he also got accepted at the school I prefer now but, at that time it was more convenient for me to accept the one that was closest due to not been able to drive. Now I am driving I'm considering accepting the offer of the other one but transferring my eldest to the same school what would you do? Have you ever changed your child's school due to preference?
Just to give you a better idea my eldest is 6 and hasn't quite settled into 'Groups of friends' yet.
You need to look carefully at the criteria for reception class entry.
Unless it says explicitly that there is priority for children already attending the nursery, then there is none. Moving your elder DC to a school that your younger one then does not secure a reception offer for would be the worst of all worlds. So take a very careful look at how well you fit the reception entrance criteria.
