When a child has been experiencing difficulties at school, particularly of a behavioural nature, head teachers may suggest that a parent considers a managed move for their child. A managed move is a useful strategy that allows a pupil who is experiencing difficulties in school and who would perhaps benefit from being moved away from any negative influences to participate in a ‘fresh start’ elsewhere. It involves a child attending another school for a specified period of time. A managed move cannot be undertaken without the consent of parents.
Why would a child be considered for a managed move?
The head teacher of a child’s school may request that parent/carer consider a managed move for their child because the child is displaying some challenging behaviours and they believe all other strategies in school have been exhausted.
If a parent / carer would like their child considered for a managed move then they should contact the child's school.
