Councillor Kam Kaur, Portfolio Holder for Education summarised the published report, noting that the Education Sufficiency Strategy was a core strategy which set out how the council would plan, develop and commission education provision for early years, school places, post 16 and SEND.  She noted that there were a number of challenges and considerations which the strategy sought to highlight and address, including population changes and housing growth, the increase in pupils with recognised SEND, cost pressures, sustainability, and meeting the demand for early years provision as a result of recent legislative changes.  To facilitate the delivery of this strategy four priorities had been identified as set out in the report:?strategic planning, effective commissioning, partnership and collaboration and managing and supporting change.? 

 

Members welcomed the informative report.

 

Resolved

 

That Cabinet endorses the Warwickshire Education Sufficiency Strategy 2024-2029 and recommends it to Council for approval.
