Education and Inspections Act 2006

Section 99: Parenting contracts and parenting orders: further provisions

487.Subsection (2) amends section 21 of the Anti-social Behaviour Act 2003. This means that when a court is considering whether to grant a parenting order for misbehaviour it must take into account any previous failure by the parent to attend a reintegration interview (see section 102).

488.Subsection (3) inserts section 22A into the Anti-social Behaviour Act. It enables regulations to be made by the Secretary of State to make provision for which local education authority should have the power to enter into a parenting contract or apply for an order when the child lives in one authority but attends school in another; which school should have the power to apply for an order where the pupil has been permanently excluded; requirements to consult and share information; and how the costs associated with a parenting order should be met.
