So, what’s happening in Education Scrutiny?

Swansea Council’s education scrutiny body, the Education 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.

They recently met to discuss their work programme for the coming year. Over the next few months they will have the following meetings:

The Panel will look at progress with the 21st Century Schools Programme including Band B developments and will then concentrate on School Transport.

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).
