Consulation on changes to admissions for Dixons McMillan Academy

To be completed by: Fri 12 Jan 2018

Time: -Fri 12 Jan 2018 | Venue:

The Academy is consulting on the following proposed changes to its admissions policy from September 2019:

Additional criteria

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.


Amendment of existing criteria

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

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:

Those who do not have access to the internet can collect a paper copy from the Academy’s Reception or request a copy to be sent to them by post.

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