82.This section re-enacts with modifications section 21 of SIA 1996 in its application to Wales.

New provision is made requiring a statement of action to be prepared after other HMI inspections where the report states that a school requires significant improvement. Regulations made by the Assembly will set out the periods for preparing these written statements and the periods for sending them to specified persons, including the Assembly.
