Section 18 – Federations: supplementary provisions
44.This section allows regulations to be made which modify Chapter 4 of Part 1 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 (intervention in schools causing concern), and sections 49 – 51 and Schedule 15 to that Act (financial delegation) in their application to school federation. Regulations under this section could, for example, provide that where certain conditions that trigger powers of intervention exist in relation to one school within a federation, but not to others, those powers of intervention can nevertheless be exercised in relation to the governing body. Section 18 also allows for regulations to modify legislation relating to different categories of schools. Such regulations will make it clear how that legislation applies in relation to schools within a federation which belong to different categories.
