Change of address or moving into Central Bedfordshire

By law you must make your starting school application to your home local authority (where you pay council tax). We consider you to be a resident of Central Bedfordshire (for admission purposes) once you have moved into a property in the area, have exchanged contracts or have a signed tenancy agreement (by both you and the landlord / letting agent).
