The States are asked to decide:-

Whether, after consideration of the Policy Letter entitled Transforming Education Programme & Putting Into Effect the Policy Decisions Made by the States in 2018, dated 5th July, 2019, of the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, they are of the opinion:

1. To note that the capital costs of the policy of organising secondary education in one 11-18 school operating in two colleges, which was agreed by the States on the 19th of January 2018, will be up to a maximum of £69 million; and to delegate authority to the Policy & Resources Committee to approve expenditure, subject to the submission of appropriate business cases by the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, of up to £69 million, which may be drawn down over a period of five years from 2019, for the capital development of the 11-18 school and colleges on the sites of the current Les Beaucamps High School and St Sampson's High School as part of the Transforming Education Programme.

2. To note that the capital costs of the policy of organising further and higher education in purpose-built facilities on a single site, which was agreed by the States on the 19th of January 2018, will be up to a maximum of £47.5 million; and to delegate authority to the Policy & Resources Committee to approve expenditure, subject to the submission of appropriate business cases by the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, of up to £47.5 million, which may be drawn down over a period of three years from 2021, for the capital development of The Guernsey Institute at Les Ozouets as part of the Transforming Education Programme.

3. To delegate authority to the Policy & Resources Committee to approve expenditure, subject to the submission of appropriate business cases by the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, of up to £8.6 million on the transition and transformation costs which are necessary between 2019 and 2024 to establish the 11-18 school and colleges and The Guernsey Institute and to put into effect the policies relating to the future model of secondary, further and higher education which were agreed by the States on the 19th of January 2018; and to note that the maximum sum of £8.6 million is expected to be allotted annually as follows: 2019 £1.0 million, 2020 £2.1 million, 2021 £2.0 million, 2022 £2.5 million and 2023 £1.0 million.

4. To note that the capital costs of redeveloping La Mare de Carteret Primary School will be in the range of £13.4 million to £22.4 million; and to delegate authority to the Policy & Resources Committee to approve expenditure, subject to the submission of appropriate business cases by the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, of up to £22.4 million, which may be drawn down over a period of two years from 2022, for the capital redevelopment of La Mare de Carteret Primary School as part of the Transforming Education Programme; and to note that the business cases associated with this project will include the results of a review of capacity in the primary phase across the Island.

5. To delegate authority to the Policy & Resources Committee to approve expenditure, subject to the submission of appropriate business cases by the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, of up to £5.8 million on the Digital Road Map, which is intended significantly to improve digital services across the education estate as part of the Transforming Education Programme.

6. a) To note that the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture considers that there is merit in rationalising the number of campuses from which the College of Further Education is operating by relocating provision from the Delancey Campus to the Les Ozouets Campus; and to agree that the Committee will work with the Committee for Health & Social Care and the States' Trading Supervisory Board to establish as expeditiously as possible the feasibility of using the Delancey Campus for a range of health, care and community services provided under the auspices of the Committee for Health & Social Care;

    b) To delegate authority to the Policy & Resources Committee to approve expenditure, subject to the submission of appropriate business cases by the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, of up to £4 million for additional capital developments at each of the 11-18 colleges to accommodate services to children and their families which would benefit from working in closer partnership with the school and colleges;

    c) To agree that the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture, the Committee for Health & Social Care and the States' Trading Supervisory Board shall jointly investigate the merits and feasibility of the site at Les Varendes which currently accommodates the Grammar School & Sixth Form Centre, or other sites in the ownership of the States which the Board wishes to include in such investigations, accommodating in the future a range of health, care and community services, commissions and other bodies which provide services on behalf of the States; and to direct the Committee for Education, Sport & Culture and the Committee for Health & Social Care to return to the States with their conclusions and any propositions they consider necessary well in advance of the time when secondary education will cease to be provided at Les Varendes.

The above Propositions have been submitted to Her Majesty's Procureur for advice on any legal or constitutional implications in accordance with Rule 4(1) of the Rules of Procedure of the States of Deliberation and their Committees.
