Children and Families Overview and Scrutiny Committee

Purpose of committee

Each overview and scrutiny committee may be invited to provide advice and recommendations on the development and updating of the policies of the Council, wholly owned companies (WOC’s), alternative service delivery vehicles (ASDV’s) and other bodies.


The Committee will have all relevant overview and scrutiny powers under Section 21 of the Local Government Act 2000, and will fulfil the functions as far as they relate to performance management, policy development and review. 


Particular regard will be paid, but not restricted, to education, children’s social care, early years provision, looked after children and youth services.


The four statutory co-optees in respect of the Council’s education function will also sit on this Committee.
