EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations bring into force on 18th April 2016 all of the provisions of the Education and Adoption Act 2016, except for section 1 (which provides for coasting maintained schools to be eligible for intervention), section 15 (which deals with local authority adoption functions) and section 16 (which makes consequential repeals).

Regulation 3 amends the Academies Act 2010 so that the references to section 14 of the Education and Adoption Act coming into force are replaced with the actual date on which it comes into force. The power to do this is in section 104 of the Deregulation Act 2015.

Regulation 4 provides that the old law will continue to apply where a local authority has given either a performance standards and safety warning notice or a teachers’ pay and conditions warning notice before 18th April and an appeal could be or has been made against the warning notice.

Regulation 5 provides that the Secretary of State does not have to make an Academy order for schools which are scheduled to close after 18th April 2016, following completion of the procedure for school closure set out in the Education and Inspections Act 2006.
