Section 223: Amendments consequential on Chapter 2

712.A Local Commissioner will be able to consider complaints relating to the National Curriculum where it affects an individual pupil. Previously, local education authorities had a role in the complaints process under section 409 of the Education Act 1996 and paragraphs 6(3) and (4) of Schedule 1 of the Education Act 1996. These sections have been repealed so that complainants are able to approach a Local Commissioner under the new scheme.
