Verbal report plus supporting documents.
The Committee received the Devon Improvement Plan report that had been presented to the Improvement Partnership on 20 August 2020, which included an updated action matrix, key areas of progress and risk and preparations for the first Ofsted monitoring visit. This Improvement plan had been in place since July and replaced the previous Covid-19 improvement plan.
Officers responded to Members’ questions that covered:
· Progress not being made on some priorities as quickly as planned due to some actions being de-prioritised and others where focussed work has started with partners;
· A score card would be provided with future Committee reports on the improvement plan;
· Members would have preferred to see a covering report, giving an overview of the improvement plan identifying where the weaknesses were, and progress made against them; and
· The first Ofsted monitoring visit would take place across two days, 22/23 September.
