Children and Families Committee papers

Children and Families Committee papers for next Tuesday now out - check CPOL - main agenda is here.

Report of most interest is undoubtedly item 7: "Strategic Management of School Provision: Intakes for August 2008" - I touched on some of these issues a couple of weeks ago in relation to one of my own local Ward schools ... Appendix 1 of the report confirms that the timetable for any final decision on this has some time to run.

One noteworthy point contained within the report - here - is at paragraph 3.12, which shows a 3.5% increase in the P1 intake for August 2008. Does seem to go against the grain of earlier estimates about falling school rolls ...
