Reviewing services provided to local people
The Children's Services Scrutiny Committee is one of the Council’s 5 scrutiny committees. The Children's Services Scrutiny Committee is responsible for reviewing matters related to the council's education function. For this reason, there are four co-opted members on the committee: two parent-governors, and representatives of the Church of England and Roman Catholic Diocese.
During a review, committee members gather evidence in a variety of ways, including visiting organisations and other local authorities and receiving witness evidence, including from residents. When the committee has all the evidence they need, they make a number of recommendations to Executive to improve services and monitor their implementation 12 months on.
council has the following review committees: Policy and Performance
Scrutiny Committee (which has overall responsibility for scrutiny
and the work programme), Children’s Services Scrutiny
Committee, Health and Care Scrutiny Committee, Housing Scrutiny
Committee and Environment and Regeneration Scrutiny
