23/06/2020 - Dedicated School Grants (DSG) Review ref: 4516    For Determination

The purpose of the report is to present to the Scrutiny Committee the initial findings and recommendations of the dedicated schools grant (DSG) review. To gain agreement to progress the review recommendations through governance and consultation.
The review of the High Needs Block expenditure financed by deployment of the DSG had been commissioned by Stockport Schools’ Forum and senior leaders within the Local Authority (LA). The review was commissioned to:
1.Ensure that the High Needs Block is financially sustainable
2.Ensure that the spend in the High Needs Block is transparent to all parties
3.Ensure that the High Needs Block has the maximum impact in supporting young people with special educational needs and disability (SEND) within Stockport to achieve they achieve the best outcomes
The review has focussed on spend in the DSG high needs block which covers:
•Place funding and top up funding for specialist settings (i.e. special schools, resourced provision bases and pupil referral units (PRUs)).
•Support as outlined within an education, health and care plan (EHCP) for additional educational needs in mainstream schools, specialist settings and Post 16 establishments.
•Independent School Fees for the SEND cohort
•Specialist support services (i.e. Sensory, learning support, etc.); and
•Other SEN/Inclusion support services and activities. Including those to young people excluded from school.
The review was commissioned in recognition of the need for the following:
•To ensure that the high needs block in the longer term is financially sustainable in line with Medium Term Financial Plan (MTFP) recommendations
•To ensure that there is transparency to all parties in relation to spend in the block
•To ensure that the high needs block has the maximum impact in supporting young people with SEND within Stockport to achieve the outcomes identified as being strategically priority
The Head of Commissioning - Improved Services was tasked in June 2019 with completing the review and then produced a 6-month timeline to gain the information, with completion of initial findings and writing up taking place in early 2020. The review has largely stuck to the proposed timeline. There has been a gap in the governance process due to proposed local elections and then the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic upon governance structures. The review has been overseen by a subset of Stockport Schools’ Forum and an internal LA Management Group made up of senior officers.

12/06/2020 - Proposed Traffic Regulation Orders - Astley Street / Chestergate ref: 4513    Recommendations Approved

Decision Maker: Cabinet Member for Sustainable Stockport

Decision published: 22/06/2020

Effective from: 27/06/2020

Decision:

The Cabinet Member for Sustainable Stockport considered a report detailing a package of traffic orders associated with the Astley Street and Chestergate highways and bridge works.

 

It was noted that the Central Stockport Area Committee previously considered the matter at its meeting in April 2019 and endorsed the proposals.  The Cabinet Member for Sustainable Stockport subsequently gave approval to the proposals which were published as an executive decision with the reference CMDSS4.

 

However, an exemption for buses, taxis and cycles associated with the Prohibition of Right Turns between Swaine Street onto Chestergate and between Viaduct Street onto Chestergate was omitted in error from the original schedule contained in the report and accordingly, it is necessary to give consideration to a revised package of proposals.

 

The Cabinet Member for Sustainable Stockport has therefore given approval to the statutory legal advertising of the updated package of Traffic Regulation Orders detailed in Appendices A and B of the report and, subject to the receipt of no objections within twenty one days of the advertisement date, the subsequent making of the orders with any costs being met from within the budget for the Stockport Interchange project.
