Cognus statement (Ian Comfort, chair of Cognus’ board of directors):
I would like to welcome Nick Ireland of Sutton Council to the board of Cognus as a non-executive director.
With Nick on the Board, we look forward to working even more closely with the Council to continue delivering for children and young people in the borough, and remain committed to the local area improvement programme.
As an organisation clear about the importance of ongoing improvement and collaboration, we welcome the review that has been announced. We look forward to working with Sharon Scott, the Council’s newly appointed independent expert, who will find the whole Cognus team, including our hard working team of SEND practitioners, keen to work with her. I am proud of the work that the team has done and continues to do to support the council in its improvement ambitions.
