So, what is happening in Education Scrutiny in Swansea in Oct/Nov?

Swansea Councils education scrutiny body, the Schools Performance Scrutiny Panel, has the role of providing ongoing challenge to schools performance in order to ensure that pupils in Swansea are receiving a high quality education and that it is meeting its objectives to improve schools standards and pupil attainment.

The up-coming meetings for this Panel are:

18 October 2018 at 4.00pm (Committee Room 6 in the Guildhall)

The panel will look at:

  • the School Improvement Service
  • Quality in Education and the 21st Century Schools Programme

16 November 2017

The panel will visit Olchfa Comprehensive School, meeting with the Headteacher and chair of governors and also the Headteacher and chair of governors of Parklands Primary School.  The Panel chose to meet with them because of their collaboration work in relation to the pioneer schools pilot.  Councillors are interested to find out how this is working and what can be learnt from this good practice that can be shared.

You can find copies of all scrutiny agendas here  (the papers for both meetings will be available at the end of the week prior to the meeting).
