Have your say on the proposed reduction in Published Admission Number for the 2019/20 Academic Year.

Why are we doing this?

Croydon Council would welcome your views on the proposed reduction of Norbury Manor Primary, and Monks Orchard Primary Schools’ Published Admission Number (PAN) for the 2019/20 academic year as part of the community schools’ published admission arrangements (Appendix 1). The proposal is to reduce the PAN for Norbury Manor Primary School and Monks Orchard Primary School by one form of entry (1FE) – 30 Reception pupils each - from September 2019.

The Council is the Admission Authority for community schools and is therefore responsible for consulting on the reduction of community schools’ admission numbers, where necessary.

This consultation will run from 8 November 2017 to 20 December 2017.


For more details, please see the attached Consultation Document.

What do we want to know?
