50Recoupment by local education authority of costs of teachers' premature retirement

(2)In subsection (5) (local education authority’s costs in respect of teacher’s dismissal or premature retirement not normally to be met from school’s budget share), at the beginning there shall be inserted “Subject to subsection (5A),”.

(3)After that subsection there shall be inserted—

(5A)Subsection (5) does not apply to costs incurred by the local education authority in respect of any premature retirement of a member of the staff of the school occurring on or after the date of the passing of the Education Act 1997; and such costs shall be met from the school’s budget share for one or more financial years except in so far as the authority agree with the governing body (whether before or after the retirement occurs) that they shall not be so met.

(5B)The agreement of the local education authority for the purposes of subsection (5A) must be given in writing on or after the date of the passing of that Act.
