Section 98 – General interpretation and index of defined expressions

114.Section 98 defines terms used in the Act and also contains an index of terms that are defined for the purpose of some provisions of the Act. Subsection (1) provides that the Act is to be read as one with the Education Act 1996. This means that general provisions and general definitions in that Act will also apply to this Act. For example the definition of the “education functions” of a local authority in the Education Act 1996 refers to the functions set out in Schedule 36A to that Act. That term, when used in this Act, has the same meaning. If there is a difference in meaning between a term used in this Act and in the Education Act 1996, the meaning given for the purpose of this Act applies.
