Consultation on a Proposed Reduction in the Published Admission Number (PAN) for Tong Leadership Academy Star Academies (Trust) is the admission authority for Tong Leadership Academy. The Trust invites you to take part in a statutory consultation exercise on the proposal to reduce the PAN. Background - The current PAN and numbers on roll (NOR) as at 4th October 2018 are as follows: Year Group 7 8 9 10 11 PAN 270 270 270 270 270 NOR 164 215 148 161 180 Children attending Tong Leadership Academy is substantially below PAN. Proposal – Given the disparity between the PAN and the actual NOR, we propose to reduce the PAN for Year 7 Admissions for September 2020 to 180. This would apply to all subsequent Year 7 cohorts. The reduction in PAN to 180 would also apply to all year groups in September 2019. The proposed reduction in PAN for existing year groups would not affect children who are already at the school in year groups where the NOR is greater than the proposed PAN of 180. Where there is a local need to admit over PAN in Year 7, the Trust will work in partnership with Bradford Council to increase the intake in order to accommodate the demand for places. The Trust will discuss with Bradford Council the intake for future years Year 7 admissions on an annual basis. If you wish to view the full rationale for the reasons for the proposal to reduce the PAN, please view the document on the school’s website https://www.tongleadershipacademy. com/information/admission-to-academy/ or telephone the school 01274 681455 for a copy.
