Do any of you undertake specific scrutiny of schools? If so how do you do it and what do your schools think of this?
I'm not aware of Solihull having undertaken reviews of specific schools. We have had a mixed experience of school/ headteacher engagement when reviewing matters of a more general nature. I think it boils down to the attitude of the individuals concerned and also possibily whether the school itself has anything to gain from it (i.e. bolstering the schools reputation).
The CfPS's document "Accoutability in Education" makes an interesting read and I would ask what others think of the Scrutiny function using community wellbeing powers and principal of general powers of competence in getting school governing bodies and headteachers to the table?
