School Admissions - Leaving City Form

Please complete this form if you/or the family you are completing for are relocating to another city, emigrating from the UK, travelling within the UK, or returning to your home country.

When completing a Leaving City Form (LCF) please ensure one of the following:

1.    The family are moving out of the UK and have completed a Leaving City Form (LCF) form giving their new address and the name of the child’s new school (where known). In such cases you do not need to complete a Children Missing Education (CME) form as we are unable to check information in other countries so we will accept what the family have told us. You can also take the child off the school roll immediately.

 

2.    The family are moving within the UK, they have completed a Leaving City Form (LCF) with their new address and you have received official confirmation that the child is known to the local authority where they will be living once they have moved home (e.g. the Admissions team or a school in the new area). In this circumstance you can take the child off roll immediately if they have started at a new school or the child no longer lives within travelling distance of your school. You may need to be careful if the child has moved just outside of the local authority area (e.g. Yaxley, Market Deeping, etc) as the parent may want the child to return to your school if they are unable to get the school they want in their new area.

 

3.    The family are moving within the UK and have completed a Leaving City Form (LCF) with their new address but you have not received official confirmation that the child is known to the local authority where they will be living. In this scenario you would need to complete a Children Missing Education (CME) form too as we would not just accept what the parent has told us. In the vast majority of cases parents give us the correct information but on some occasions we have been provided with addresses which are incorrect. When a CME form with a LCF is received the tracking officer contacts the new authority and only closes as a CME case when the new authority confirms they are aware of the child.


You should still keep children on roll for 20 days and follow the guidance in Children Missing Education Policy unless you receive confirmation that the child is known to the new authority. You should also keep the school place open if there is a possibility that the child may return to take up their school place if they live within travelling distance of your school even though they are living in another local authority area.

Declaration
I declare that I have parental responsibility for the children named above and that the information is correct. I understand that my child will be deregistered from the school at the end of the last day of agreed attendance (unless I declare as a traveller a date of expected return). I understand that if I am leaving the city and then return to the Peterborough Local Authority area I will have to reapply for a school place.
