Consultation - PAN Reduction

The Learning without Limits Academy Trust have launched a consultation regarding the PAN (Published Admission Number) for Babington Academy, Strasbourg Drive, Leicester, LE4 0SZ. I am writing to invite you to respond and make your views heard. The Trust Board have proposed we reduce the PAN to 210 for admission to Year 7 from September 2022.

In recent years Babington Academy has a had a temporary PAN of 270 (210 + 60) to support the Local authority with a shortage of places to the north. We have discussed the number of school places forecast to be required over the coming years within Leicester City with the Local Authority and they have confirmed they will still meet their planned requirements once this proposed change has been made.

It is important to the Learning without Limits Trust Board, and to the Local Governing Body of Babington Academy, to consider the views of our parents and the wider community. If you would like to contribute to the consultation please complete the online form. Alternatively, you can request a paper copy from Reception at Babington Academy.
