Minutes:

1.          Mr Gough (Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Education) gave a verbal update on the following issues:

 

a)    Primary Offer Day

Primary Offer Day took place on 16th April, and overall, the outcomes in Kent were good. 97% of families secured one of their school preferences, and 89% of families secured their first preference of school. However, there was a slight increase in the number of school allocations.

 

b)   Elective Home Education

On 2nd April, the Department for Education published new non-statutory guidance for local authorities in relation to Elective Home Education. The main proposal highlighted the need for a register which would record all families that were electively home educating children and ensure that sufficient education was taking place.

 

2.          Mr Dunkley (Corporate Director of Children, Young People and Education) gave a verbal update on the following issues:

 

a)    Change for Kent Children Programme

The Change for Kent Children Programme had progressed well and was in its second phase. The second phase of the programme included a review of the business support services which were provided to Kent’s Early Help and Social Work services and further examination of the teams which related to adult services in terms of the parents of children that could be at risk, and also children with disabilities.

 

b)   High Needs Funding

Damian Hinds, Secretary of State for Education, had recently announced that educational funding for children with special needs in England would be reviewed through the creation of a Head Teachers Sounding Board, in response to considerable pressure at recent Teacher’s Trade Union Conferences in relation to high needs funding.

 

c)    School Exclusions

On 7th May, Edward Timpson, former Minister of State for Children and Families, had published an exclusion review to ensure that school exclusions were used appropriately.

 

d)   The funding of Local Authorities’ Children’s Services

On 1st May, the Housing, Communities and Local Government Select Committee within the House of Commons published a report which agreed with the Association of Directors of Children's Services that drastic measures needed to be taken in order to address the national funding gap of local authority funding for children's services.

Additional documents:

Minutes:

Mr Bagshaw (Head of Fair Access) wasin attendance for this item.

 

1.         Mr Bagshaw introduced the report which set out the Post 16 Transport Policy for 2019-20.

 

Mr Bagshaw then responded to comments and questions from Members, including the following: -

 

a)    Mr Bagshaw talked about the costs associated with the 16+ travel card and said that whilst a full charge was applied by the local authority, schools and colleges in receipt of bursary funding were able to apply that funding for low-income learners.

 

b)    Mr Bagshaw said that instalment plans would be introduced for the 2019/20 academic year which would alleviate the pressure felt by low-income families when purchasing a 16+ travel card. He explained the introduction of on-line purchasing had made the process more straightforward for the majority of users, although some larger college institutions in Kent had found it difficult to make payments in relation to the 16+ travel card scheme for their bursary learners.

 

c)    Mr Bagshaw confirmed that he could provide more information to Members of the Committee outside of the meeting in relation to the potential impact of amending the scheme to one with reduced travel benefits at a discounted price.

 

d)    Mr Bagshaw confirmed that an item could be brought to a future meeting of the Committee to discuss outcomes of communications between Kent County Council and rail operators with a view to discounted rail travel in the future.

 

e)    Mr Bagshaw confirmed that he could provide more information to Members of the Committee outside of the meeting in relation to the amount of SEND children that had benefited from the 16+ travel card and the amount of SEND children that were in receipt of education, outside of mainstream colleges.

 

2.         RESOLVED that the proposed decision to be taken by the Cabinet Member for Children, Young People and Education to agree to the Kent Post-16 Transport Policy Statement to be published by 31 May 2019, be endorsed.

He added that as part of the national arrangement, there was a requirement for each area to manage a critical level of numbers in order to be able to take the key learning points from such incidents and as a result, Kent and Medway had agreed to hold Joint Child Death Overview reviews. Mr Whittle added that he could provide further information to Members of the Committee outside of the meeting in relation to Serious Child Death case reviews and the number of cases. He confirmed that the Child Death Overview Panel was predominantly an NHS focused aspect of the safeguarding arrangements relating to the occurrence of child deaths and therefore was led by the NHS and driven by CCG's.

 

f)     Mr Whittle referred to the 2016 Wood review of local safeguarding children boards and said that the review had led to development of a National Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel and Local Child Safeguarding Practice Review (the replacement for serious case review), although it was not absolutely clear the capacity and the number of cases the national panel would handle. He added that the Child Safeguarding Practice Review Panel was chaired by Mr Timpson.

 

g)    Mr Whittle talked briefly about the national issues that counties faced in relation to the statutory guidance which provided a broad definition of what should be included in regard to Education safeguarding.

However, as local areas were regularly inspected, the percentage changed constantly. Whilst it remained a majority of local authorities with a WSoA, it was not accurate to state that it was 80% of local authorities.

 

3.          The Chairman suggested that the item be brought back to the Cabinet Committee in March 2020 and that the written statement of action be circulated to Committee Members when it had been sent.

c)    In response to a question, Mr Dunkley informed the Committee of the measures that Kent County Council had put into place to ensure that Special Education Need (SEN) staff and Education Psychologists were supported during periods of significantly high workloads, whilst continuing to ensure that a child-centred approach was taken.

 

d)    In response to a question, Mr Gough emphasised the importance of ensuring that the parents and families of children with SEN were receiving the essential services and had confidence in the Education, Health and Care Plan (EHCP) process. He added that the level of demand nationally for EHCP’s was ever-increasing and Kent County Council had sought to address the high levels of demand through measures within the Special Educational Needs and Disability action plan. Mr Dunkley added that the promotion of EHCP’s within the health sector had contributed to the significant rise in the level of demand for EHCP’s.

 

e)    In response to a question, Mr Dunkley said that whilst the amount of High Needs funding allocated to local authorities had increased, the demand for EHCP’s continued to increase  ...  view the full minutes text for item 107.
