Consultation to change our PAN for Admissions 2020-21

Westbourne Academy proposes to reduce its PAN (Pupil Admission Number) for 2020-21 from 224 places to 200 places. The consultation period opens on the 20 December for 6 weeks. 

The academy has not reached its PAN of 224 and this has created a significance amount of In Year Admissions. In 2017/18 there were 86 such admissions, which puts a significant pressure on the effective deployment of resources in terms of teachers, support staff and accommodation. Please contact office@westbourne.attrust.org.uk if you wish to share your views or ask for further clarification.
