    It's not just a little white lie anymore when you bring a stat dec into the mix.
    Not only that, but schools *do* ask kids to leave if they move, but allow them to finish the year or at least the semester.

    I think doing either or both those things would constitute breaking the law

    Unless it is a school that lots of people are scrabbling to get into, they'll likely accept your stated address without any proof.

    If it is one that is in high demand then they might be more diligent about checking addresses - and this is where you might need some proof. I think making a call to the school stating that you are considering moving into the area and asking what proof you need to provide to facilitate your child's enrollment.

    I've never needed to provide proof of address to any of the schools my children have attended, and do believe that it differs depending on the school.

    The other option is to actually move in with DHs aunt and uncle for a few weeks prior to the start of school. After enrollment is finalised you can move out again. That way everything is legal and above-board.

    I didn't know that. I would expect them to be asked to leave if it were discovered that had falsified their address when enrolling, but not if they were legitimately within the catchment then moved outside.

    I would lie about my DDs birthday to start her school a year earlier (she misses the cut off by a few days) if I didnt think it would somehow backfire later on

    Oops! I honestly didn't realise how serious this is. Wow, maybe we will just have to look at our finances in a few years and look at buying in that town for the sake of DD.
    I think I would go back to work to be able send DD to that school.

    But if you are saying that you have moved in with your in-laws until your finances were sorted (which could potentially be a number of years) then they can't expect a utilities bill because that would remain in your in-laws name? So surely they would need to accept another form of proof.
