School Standards and Organisation (Wales) Act 2013
The School Organisation Code imposes requirements and provides guidelines in respect of school organisation proposals.
It is intended that these proposals will form a School Standards and Organisation (Wales) Bill that will be introduced in 2012.
This Act became law in Wales on 4 March 2013.
The Act sets out proposals to strengthen school standards, enhance local determination and reduce complexity.
- provides a clearer process for school intervention and drives school improvement by introducing statutory guidance.
- reforms the statutory process for school organisation so that decisions are taken locally wherever possible.
- removes the requirement for School Governing Bodies to hold Annual Parents’ Meetings and introduce a new right for parents to call meetings with School Governing Bodies.
- gives local authorities and schools greater flexibility over the pricing of school meals.
- mainstreams several grant-funded programmes to help streamline current processes.
- makes local authorities accountable for planning Welsh-medium provision by making Welsh in Education Strategic Plans statutory.
Full details of the Act are available from the National Assembly for Wales (external website).
