I have asked the Norfolk County Council Cabinet Member for Children’s Services the following question:
The Local Government and Social Care Ombudsman recently instructed the Council to provide more regular updates to its committee members on the number of children out of education in the county – and those at risk of having their education break down. Can the Cabinet Member for Children’s Services tell us what plans he has for providing this information and what steps he will take to review Council practices where it risks failing to meet its statutory obligations to provide education for children.
…after this story appeared in the EDP. Similar problems faced by other families have been brought to my attention.
