To be stressed with moving and school admissions

Posting for a bit more traffic than on the primary boards.
DP and I are relocating for work approx 30 miles down away. My DS is 7, due to start year 3 in September.

I’m struggling with the admissions process for his new school. I’ve spoken to the local authority who said to apply for in year admission, but this will need to be for a junior school in the area that starts in year 3.
All well and good but what if we move before July? Do I apply for in year admissions for the primary school so he spends a half term in year 2 (if that’s even possible) and would I then have to further apply for a junior school place?
Do I somehow juggle the commute of 30 miles for the last half term?
It’s all so confusing so any advice or experience would be appreciated.

That sounds really stressful. Have you considered home-schooling him for half a term? That term is pretty short anyway, and the summer has lots of fun 'educational' things you could do?

I can’t sadly as we both work full time.

I’m hoping to speak to the local authority tomorrow but it’s all just getting a bit much now what with everything else to organise.
