First time poster to this forum.

My husband and I are separated & we have a DD who is in year 5. My DD now wants to move & live with her Dad who is living in Bucks. My ex want her to apply to grammar school but she's currently living with me 80 miles away. When she moves in with her dad do I need to provide any paperwork to prove that she's living there? Or is that fact that I'm located 80 miles away will suffice?

Thanks in advance.

You need to read the rules in the Secondary Admissions brochure: http://beta.buckscc.gov.uk/media/1040/m ... tion-1.pdf

From Page 25:

Quote:
Shared or joint residence

To avoid doubt, where a child lives with parents/carers (with or without parental responsibility)
whether for part of a week, or month, the address where the child lives for admission purposes will be
determined by confirmation of:

- the registered address to which Child Benefit is currently being paid

OR
- if Child Benefit is not received, the address at which a child is registered with a GP

OR
- The address at which the child spends the greater proportion of the school week from Sunday evening to Thursday evening

You must therefore send us a copy of your latest benefit entitlement notice or your child’s medical card.

We may ask for further evidence.

Will this be until she is 18 or will she move back with you at some point?

Does she want to go to grammar school? DG

DG I don't think this is any of our business, OP would just like some advice.

Thank you, doodles, and I agree completely.

I have removed the comments above, and I hope superhoop will feel able to continue to ask for advice on this issue.

Not sure what DG said but I hope that you are OK. On the whole, I've found this forum very supportive.

Also, we are making a similar move in the new year & I'm finding it tough. I can't imagine how you must feel about this at all.
