Staff: minor amendments
Section 19: Staffing of maintained schools: suspension of delegated budget
124.Section 19 amends sections 35(7) and 36(7) of EA 2002 which make provision for the effect on staffing of any suspension of a school’s delegated budget under section 17 of, or Schedule 15 to, SSFA 1998.
125.Section 66 of the EIA 2006 replaced section 17 of the SSFA 1998 in relation to England, with section 17 continuing to apply in relation to Wales only. These amendments are necessary to give effect to the intention that the effect on staffing of the suspension of a school’s delegated budget should be the same for schools in England and Wales.
