Admissions into Reception for September 2020
The national offer date for school places was 16th April 2020. Parents who completed the local authorities Common Application/Preference Form will be advised by the local authorities of the school allocated to their child on this date.
For Dixons Allerton, there were over 260 applications on the Common Application Form for the 60 places available. The breakdown of places by oversubscription criteria was as follows:
- EHCP – 2
- Looked-after – 2
- Exceptional social/medical need – 0
- Music - 6
- Staff - 2
- Siblings – 21
- Random allocation – 25
- Sibling in the same year – 2
Regrettably because of the high number of applications, it has not been possible to offer every child, who wants one, a place. We automatically keep every child's name on the waiting list until the end of December 2020. You are advised to return the local authority's Waiting List form (available in the Downloads section below) to inform them if you want to stay on the waiting list for this or any other school.
If you have any specific questions about the waiting list or admissions process, please contact us via the contact details given above.
Dixons Music Primary is a very popular school and, consequently, a vacancy is only likely to occur if a child leaves the year group, which does not happen very often.
Should you wish to add your child to the waiting list, please telephone or write to Admissions via e-mail or letter (contact details are given below) with the following information; you may also wish to include the reason for application. A written confirmation will be sent to you to advise what the current situation is.
- Child’s full name, date of birth, present school and home address
- Name of parent/carer
- Address of parent/carer, if different to the child's address
- Contact telephone number

Because we are part of a coordinated admission scheme, you also need to complete an In-Year Application Form for the local authority in order to be eligible for a place if a vacancy occurs.
The In-Year form is available by downloading it from their website (see address below) or by contacting the Admissions Team at the local authority:
Telephone: 01274 439200
Where vacancies do occur, places are decided by random allocation (in line with the School Admissions Code) and by applying our oversubscription criteria (see Admissions & Appeals Policy).
