The Supply of School Places - Statutory Proposals
The Welsh Government’s principal role in school organisation issues is to set out the legal and policy framework.
Primary responsibility for the provision of suitable education within an area rests with local authorities. They must ensure the pattern of school provision is kept under regular review. If, as a result, a local authority concludes there is a need to reorganise its school provision, it must comply with statutory procedures set out in the School Standards and Organisation (Wales) Act 2013 and the School Organisation Code.
These begin with full consultation with all interested parties. If, in the light of consultation, the local authority decides that change is the best way forward, it must publish a notice setting out its proposals. This gives anyone the opportunity to object to the proposals, within a 28 day period. These requirements to consult, publish and invite objections seek to ensure that, as far as is possible, all those likely to be affected by a proposal are informed of its exact nature and have an opportunity to express their views.
Details of all proposals brought forward from the formation of the National Assembly for Wales in July 1999 to the present are available by clicking on the relevant local authority.
