Changing school during changing address

I have a question to ask about the changing school of my 7 years old daughter, she is joining the College de la Barre in Tunnel, Lausanne. We had a changing address recently, few days ago I received the letter from Etablissement primaire de Beaulieu to announce that my daughter will change her school for the next year. However, we don't want the new suggested school, my daughter wants to stay at the same school as present, our new house is in the middle of the old & new school.


I'd like to ask if anyone here has any experience about this case, can you suggest for me what to do in this situation?

Thanks in advance

Re: Changing school during changing address

Talk to the administration of both schools. Focus on the social benefits of your child staying with her current friends. Even up here, in German speaking Switzerland, people can be flexible.

Re: Changing school during changing address

From http://www.lausanne.ch/thematiques/s...demarches.html

Changement d’adresse à Lausanne
Si vous déménagez à Lausanne, veuillez en premier lieu aviser la direction de l’établissement que fréquente votre enfant et n’oubliez pas de communiquer votre changement d’adresse au contrôle des habitants.

Selon l’âge de votre enfant et le lieu de votre nouveau domicile, soit il pourra rester ou terminer l’année scolaire dans la même classe, soit il devra changer d’école.

En principe, les plus jeunes élèves rejoignent l’école de leur nouveau quartier et les plus grands poursuivent dans la même classe, au moins jusqu’à la fin de l’année scolaire, voire, si les effectifs des classes le permettent, jusqu’à la fin de leur scolarité obligatoire.

La décision relève de la direction des établissements concernés. Elle tient compte des effectifs des classes, des questions d’organisation familiale et de prise en charge parascolaire.

Change of address in Lausanne
If you are moving to Lausanne, please first of all
Please notify the management of the establishment your child attends and do not forget to communicate your change of address to the residents' registration office.

Depending on your child's age and the place of your new home, he or she will either be able to stay or finish the school year in the same class or will have to change schools.

In principle, the youngest pupils join the school in their new district and the oldest pupils continue in the same class, at least until the end of the school year or, if the class size allows, until the end of their compulsory education.

The decision is taken by the management of the schools concerned. It takes account of class size, family organization and extra-curricular care issues.
