Allow school changes to a different type of school

A change of school type takes place regularly after attending primary school. In the 4th grade of the primary school, all pupils receive a recommendation for further school attendance from the 5th grade onwards. This recommendation is not binding. You can also enroll your child in a different type of school. Changes can also be made between lower secondary school types under certain conditions. If your child is found to have special educational needs, decide whether your child should attend a support school or take part in the inclusive teaching - usually in a special school. The school authority determines the specific school to be attended.

In the event of a change, the following documents are required: Transition from primary school to lower secondary school: Half-year certificate of the last year of primary school the registration form received from the primary school Change to another type of secondary school: Recommendation of the class conference of the issuing secondary school plus Change from the support school to the inclusive teaching or from the inclusive teaching to a support school Decision of the school authority on the school to be attended
