Bullying and Extended Schools Scrutiny

At last night's Childrens Services and Education Scrutiny we agreed our final Report on Bullying.

I really enjoyed the school visits on the bullying and extended schools projects and it is very clear the resources that have been put into education since 1997. The Academy at Peckham and Harris Academy for Girls are absolutely fantastic schools and we were very impressed by the Head Teachers, staff and especially pupils that we met.
I enjoy being Chair of Scrutiny and being involved in the detailed report development.

I am off to Edinburgh next week for the CIS Cup Final with dad and then back up for a prolonged Easter break ahead of a University Conference in Newcastle. When I get back from all of that in mid April we will be into the Group AGM process and Annual Council.
