Infant to Junior Transfer
If your child goes to an infant school which only caters for children aged 4 to 7 they will have to transfer to a junior or primary school at the end of Year 2.
The infant to junior co-ordinated transfer process is for:
- Parents of Year 2 children at an infant school who require a place for a Year 3 at a junior or primary school.
- Parents of Year 2 at a primary school who require a place Year 3 place at a junior school.
If your child is in Year 2 at a primary school and you wish to apply for a Year 3 place at a different primary school you must apply on a midyear application, no more than six school weeks before the place is required.
Lincolnshire parents can apply for a place from 14 November 2016 for a Year 3 place for the September 2017 intake.
