We are currently proposing a reduction in the published admission number (PAN) for our school. We have been working with Birmingham City Council to plan for the future, specifically looking at the falling pupil numbers across the city due to a fall in birth rates.

It is proposed that the published admission number relating to the admission of children into Reception from September 2023 onwards be reduced to 90. The present published admission number is set at 120.

A copy of our proposed admission arrangements for 2023/2024 are available on our school website and by visiting:

Any comments received will be considered by the Trust Board during the Spring Term of 2022. The Trust Board will give full consideration to your comments before making its final decision on this proposal.
