(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These regulations, which apply only in relation to England, enable a local education authority to make payments and provide assistance to an Academy, a city technology college or a city college for the technology of the arts in respect of a child for whom a statement of special educational needs is maintained, under section 324 of the Education Act 1996.
Such assistance or payments may only be provided if the Academy, city technology college or city college for the technology of the arts has been approved by the Secretary of State as suitable for the admission of children with special educational needs under section 347(1) of the Education Act 1996, or where the Secretary of State has given her consent to the child being educated at the school.
These regulations impose a duty on local education authorities to review the arrangements they make to pay for and assist in the provision of special educational needs of statemented children attending city colleges. In reviewing those functions the authority must consult the governing bodies of any city colleges with whom they make arrangements for providing for pupils' special educational needs in line with a statement maintained for them.
1996 (c. 56) section 483A was inserted by section 133 of the Learning and Skills Act 2000 (c. 21). By virtue of section 483A(7) of the Education Act 1996 the powers conferred by these provisions do not apply to schools in Wales.
Established and maintained under section 482 of the Education Act 1996 which is substituted by section 65 of the Education Act 2002 (c. 32).
Section 324 is amended by paragraph 77 of Schedule 30 to the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 (c. 31).
