COVID-19 impact on schools in the spotlight

The Children & Young People’s Services Scrutiny Committee next week can be watched live on our website


Release date: 27 October 2020

The ongoing impact of COVID-19 on pupils and schools in West Sussex will be discussed at the next Children & Young People’s Services Scrutiny Committee next week on Thursday, 5 November.

The meeting will hear from a range of education professionals including primary and secondary school head teachers, chairs of governors and a chief executive of a multi-academy trust. The focus will be on the main issues schools and other education settings continue to face, the support they have received and the support they are likely to need in future.

The County Council’s Director of Education & Skills, Paul Wagstaff, will also present a report describing the Council’s response in supporting schools during the pandemic and the impact the pandemic continues to have on education outcomes for children and young people.

As well as the impact on schools, the Committee will also hear about the work Children’s Services have carried out during the pandemic to keep vulnerable children and young people safe and supported.

The Children & Young People’s Services Scrutiny Committee starts at 10.30am on Thursday, 5 November, and can be watched live on our website, where the agenda will be available to read shortly.
