Committee details

Children and Young People Scrutiny Panel

Purpose of committee

The former Education and Training Scrutiny Panel, responsible for scrutinising the provision, planning, management and performance of education and training within the borough, was reconstituted in 2005 to become the Children and Young People Scrutiny Panel. To view past meetings of the Education and Training Scrutiny Panel (pre October 2005) click the weblink here:


The Children and Young People Scrutiny Panel has responsibility for scrutinising all aspects of decisions, plans and services provided for children and young people within the borough. This includes all education and training provision, including Adult Education, and health and social care provision for children and young people. The Panel works closely with the Children & Adult’s Services, Education, Public Health and the Clinical Commissioning Group(CCG) and other service providers with the aim of helping to improve provision and act as a ‘critical friend’ in terms of service delivery.


In addition, the Children and Young People Scrutiny Panel differs from other scrutiny committees insofar as it includes statutory representatives from outside of the Council.  These are three parent governors and two majority faith representatives. The Panel has also co-opted two members of the Youth Council to represent young people’s views.
