Education and Inspections Act 2006

Section 58: Removal of requirement to issue code of practice as to relationships between LEAs and maintained schools in England etc

265.This section amends section 127 of the 1998 Act to remove the requirement for the Secretary of State to issue a Code of Practice on relationships between local education authorities and schools maintained by them. The Code currently provides statutory guidance for local education authorities and schools on how to work together effectively to raise standards.

266.Section 127 will continue to apply in Wales with some amendments. Subsection (2)(d) of this section substitutes a new paragraph (b) in section 127(1), the effect of which (taken with the removal of section 127(6) by subsection (6) of this section) is that the Code of Practice in Wales may relate to the discharge of such functions exercisable by or behalf of the local education authority that the National Assembly for Wales may determine, rather than to a specified list of functions as at present.
