Hi, What happens if you move house but stay in the same borough. Do you have to change your child's school or its just a matter of updating address with the school and council?

No, once you're in the school, you're in. You don't have to move schools because you move house.

At our borough, you stay ion the old school. If you want to go to another school which is closer you apply to them and stay on the waiting list till there is a place, all the time showing up at the old school to be educated.
