Hi, we are planning to move to Barnes and considering Barnes Primary school for our daughter to start in Sep'21. The application would close by mid-Jan next year so we were thinking of moving latest by Nov so that we can produce address proof (council tax bill) with the application. Just wanted to know if there is also a criteria on the minimum no. of months you should have stayed in the place before applying. If there is, we would rather move earlier. Also, we have been told by friends that some schools additionally ask for a minimum commitment of a year on the lease period from the start date at school, so if you start school in Sep'21 the lease period of your rental should be atleast till Sep'22.
Any idea if these hold true for Barnes & other schools in Sheen/Richmond? Any guidance would help.
