Of course you need to discuss this with her teachers. Do I understand you that she started a this new school and did fine in the first term of this year, and markedly worse in the second term ? If so, then it may not be the move per se that has affected her, but maybe something that has changed at the school. Failures in a kid doing well are curious ; 60 % is par for the course - different teachers mark with varying leniency or stringency. Some children are indeed bright, but changes in the curriculum as they move up may mean they face more difficult material, where the methods they learned and relied on before, don't work so well.
The school should be very experienced at understanding such changes and should be able to help you work out what has caused this change, and how to remedy it. Would some temporary extra tutoring help ? Try to avoid her feeling pressure to always be at the top, so that very good but not quite excellent results are felt to be failure.
