Change of Details

Changing a pupil’s name

Although it is acknowledged that parents may wish to change a child’s name for a number of reasons, changing a child’s name should not be done lightly; a name is an important part of a child’s identity. If a change of name is requested then schools are required to take reasonable steps to ensure it is done correctly.

Further information on changing a pupil’s name can be found here.
