Consultation on changes to admissions for Dixons Trinity Academy

Consultation on Admissions Policy The Academy is consulting on the following proposed changes to its admissions policy from September 2019. The Academy propose adopting one of the following two models:

Additional criteria

Model 1

  • Children who currently attend Dixons Music Primary in Year 6, will have priority for places at the Academy after the admission of siblings.  See note e) on the proposed policy

Model 2

  • Children who currently attend Dixons Music Primary in Year 6, will have priority for places at the Academy after the admission of siblings.  See point e) on the proposed policy.
  • Children on the basis of proximity to the Academy using straight line measurement from the main entrance of the Academy to the main entrance to the child’s home (see note 3).  See point f) on the proposed policy.

 

Amendment of existing criteria (both models)

  • We will also move the ruling regarding Twins or Triplets, which is already within the Policy, to within the oversubscription criteria so that this is compliant with the School Admissions Code.  This ruling has also been revised to extend it to include brothers and sisters born within the same admission year, alongside those from twin and triplet births.
  • We are also making an amendment to the wording of the exceptional social or medical need criteria, which is already within the Policy, so that this is in line with the wording used by Bradford local authority.

Consultation period and comments (both models)

The consultation lasts until Friday 12th January 2018 and we invite comments both from existing parents and other interested parties.

Please visit the following webpage to view the proposed policy in full:

Comments on the proposed policy models should be made in writing by Friday 12th January 2018 and should be addressed to Sir Nick Weller, Executive Principal.

Comments should specify which model they refer to and can be sent by:
