Action Taken Under Delegated Powers

To note the decisions made by the Executive Director, Children, Young People and Families, acting under delegated authority, in consultation with the Chair of the Committee



The Committee noted that, since its last meeting, and following receipt of further evidence that had been requested from the appellants in respect of four cases, the Executive Director, People Services, in consultation with the Chair of the Committee, under powers delegated to her with regard to Primary School Admissions had determined that:-




(a)       two pupils be prioritised at the top of their respective waiting lists in the “non-catchment” category on the grounds that there are exceptional family circumstances (Case Nos. CA1 and CA3);




(b)       one pupil be not prioritised on the waiting list as no exceptional circumstances are demonstrated (Case No.CA2); and




(c)        authority be given for a new application to be processed on the grounds that there has been a change in the medical circumstances of the child (Case No.BR1).
