Education Access and Sufficiency
Strategic overview of planning for educational places. This includes early years sufficiency and the provision of quality places for all learners of statutory school age in taxpayer-funded schools. This will involve the expansion of existing buildings and the commissioning of new schools as appropriate. Co-ordinating the admission on an annual basis of pupils to schools, and managing the transfer of pupils between schools during an academic year. Ensuring that pupils who are permanently excluded from school are provided with a place to continue their learning as quickly as possible.
