Variation of instrument of government relating to grant‐maintained integrated schoolN.I.
86. (1) The Department may by order make such modiﬁcations of any instrument of government relating to any school as, after consultation with the Board of Governors of the school and the trustees (if any), appear to be requisite—
(a)in consequence of the approval of a proposal for acquisition of grant‐maintained integrated status for the school; or
(b)for removing any inconsistency between the provisions of that instrument and any provisions included or proposed to be included in the scheme of management for the school which it appears to the Department to be expedient to remove in the interests of the school.
(2) Any modiﬁcation made by an order under this Article may be made to have permanent eﬀect or to have eﬀect for such period as may be speciﬁed in the order.
(3) Any provision of any instrument relating to any land held for the purposes of any voluntary school which—
(a)confers on any person an option to acquire an interest in that land; or
(b)provides (in whatever terms) for the determination or forfeiture of any such interest,
in the event of the school's ceasing to be a voluntary school shall, if the school becomes a grant‐maintained integrated school, have eﬀect as if the event referred to were the school's ceasing to be a school which is either a grant‐maintained integrated school or a voluntary school.
