Pupil Admission Number (PAN) Reduction Consultation

Consultation – Wigston Academy reduction of Published Admission Number (PAN)
The Published Admission Number (PAN) at Wigston Academy is currently 300 in each year group. This means that the number of pupils admitted to the academy in each year is a maximum of 300. The Trustees and Senior Leadership Team at Wigston Academy wish to reduce this by 40 places which will result in an annual pupil intake of 260 effective September 2024 onward.

Reducing the PAN will assist the Trust to provide stability in its long-term planning and allow the school to secure high-quality educational outcomes for the pupils currently on our roll, while continuing to provide an appropriate number of places for future pupil numbers in line with demand in the Wigston area. Although the Regulations and Code of Practice relating to school admissions no longer require an admissions authority to consult when maintaining or increasing a schools PAN, there remains a requirement to consult when the proposal is to reduce. Wigston Academies Trust, as the admissions authority for Wigston Academy, is seeking comments on the proposed change. It is important to the Wigston Academies Trust Board and our Academy Local Governing Body, to consider the views of our parents and the wider community.
