(3)At the request of a specified body, the Welsh Ministers—

(a)may modify proposals adopted under section 73 after consulting the specified bodies, and

(b)where the adoption of proposals was expressed to take effect subject to the occurrence of a specified event, may specify a later date by which that event must occur.

(4)The Welsh Ministers may determine that subsection (2) does not apply to the proposals if they are satisfied, after consulting the specified bodies—

(a)that implementation of the proposals would be unreasonably difficult, or

(b)that circumstances have so altered since the proposals were adopted that implementation of the proposals would be inappropriate.

(5)Each of the following is a “specified body” for the purposes of subsections (3) and (4)—

(a)the governing body of the school to which the proposals relate;

(b)in the case of a proposal to establish a new school, the temporary governing body constituted in accordance with arrangements made under section 34 of the Education Act 2002;

(c)the local authority that maintains, or that it is proposed will maintain, the school to which the proposals relate;

(d)where the school to which the proposals relate is a community special school each local authority which maintains a statement of special educational needs under Part 4 of the Education Act 1996 in respect of a registered pupil at the school.

75Responsibility for implementation

(1)Proposals to establish a school must be implemented by the local authority that it is proposed will maintain the school.

(2)Proposals to make an alteration described in paragraph 6 of Schedule 2 must be implemented—

(a)in the case of proposals relating to a community school, by the local authority that maintains the school;

(b)in the case of proposals relating to a voluntary aided school—

(i)so far as relating to the provision of any relevant premises, by the local authority that maintains the school, and

(ii)otherwise, by the local authority that maintains the school and the governing body of the school to the extent (if any) as the proposals provide for each of them to do so;

(c)in the case of proposals relating to any other school, by the local authority that maintains the school and the governing body of the school to the extent (if any) as the proposals provide for each of them to do so.

(3)In subsection (2) “relevant premises” means—

(b)buildings which are to form part of the school premises but are not to be school buildings.

(4)Proposals to discontinue a school must be implemented—

(a)in the case of proposals relating to a community or community special school, by the local authority that maintains the school, and

(b)in any other case, by the local authority that maintains the school and the governing body of the school.

(5)If a school changes category from a community school after proposals have been published under section 72 but before they have been implemented, the proposals (to the extent that they have not been implemented) must be implemented by the local authority that maintains the school (despite subsections (2) and (4)).

76Further provision as to implementation

(1)Where a local authority is required by virtue of section 75 to provide a site for a foundation or voluntary controlled school, paragraph 7 of Schedule 3 (provision of site and buildings for foundation or voluntary controlled school) applies as it applies in the circumstances mentioned in sub-paragraph (1) of that paragraph.
