This is to inform you that Brighter Futures for Children/ Reading Borough Council have applied to the Office of the School Adjudicator to reduce the Published Admission Number (PAN) at the Ridgeway Primary School from the current PAN of 90 to 60 from September 2020.

We consulted on reducing the PAN from October through to December 2018 via an online consultation. From this consultation those who responded 70% agreed to this 11.70% did not agree and 18% did not answer the question. The feedback of those who did not agree was that we need to ensure that there are enough school places in Reading for all children. The proposal to consult to decrease the PAN at the Ridgeway was made due to the fact a new two-form entry Primary School in Green Park Village was due to open in 2019/2020, which would increase the sufficiency in the area. The Academy Trust who was due to open the School together with the DFE decided to delay the opening of the school and therefore when we determined the policy we decided not to reduce the PAN.

Now we have had confirmation that the Green Park School will open it now means we will have extra the places in the South Planning area which will better accommodate the children in the area rather than having a surplus in the Ridgeway School

Should you wish to make any comments of the Variations in the PAN at the Ridgeway from 90 to 60 please do so by the 24th June by emailing admissions.team@reading.gov.uk
