Decision details

Self Managed Learning College (SMLC)

Decision Maker: Children & Young People Committee

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: No


Two separate amendments were put and a vote was taken on each of them in turn.


The first which was put by the Conservative Group was lost by a vote of 3 to 7 (Conservative for, Labour and Green against), the second amendment which was put by the Green group was upheld by a vote of 7 to 3 (Conservatives and Greens for, Labour against). This second set of amendments was then incorporated and became the substantive recommendations on which a formal vote was taken. The amended recommendations were rejected by a vote of 6 to 4 (Greens for, Conservative and Labour against).


Following a brief adjournment the Committee reconvened and it was determined that following rejection of the recommendations the default position was that the status quo applied. This meant the current policy as to funding the attendance of children in receipt of home education at the SMLC remained as it was prior to the vote.


RESOLVED – No decision was taken.
