School Place Planning: Strategy for Specialist Placements pdf icon PDF 130 KB

    As part of the SEND transformation plan, approved by cabinet on 29 January 2019 a recommendation was made to provide more specialist school places in Surrey– in specialist provision in mainstream schools and in special schools – so that children with special educational needs and / or disabilities (SEND) could be placed closer to home.  Accordingly, officers have drafted a ten year place planning strategy, the aim of which is to provide a greatly improved environment for children with the highest level of specialist needs and increase their outcomes through more newly-built or refurbished state-funded, local provision.

Interim Procurement Forward Plan pdf icon PDF 90 KB

    The revised Procurement and Contract Standing Orders agreed by the Council in May 2019 require the preparation of an Annual Procurement Forward Plan during the business planning cycle. This new approach will be implemented in full for 2020/21, with a plan being considered by Cabinet in December. However, currently we are in a transitionary phase and there is no such plan in place for the projects underway or due to start in the financial year 2019/20.  To ensure transparency and oversight Cabinet are therefore asked to approve an Interim Procurement Forward Plan to cover this activity.
