EXPLANATORY NOTE

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006.

Regulation 3 amends regulation 5 of those Regulations to require that a school’s admission register must include any new address at which a pupil will be living and any new school which a pupil will be attending, when a person authorised by the proprietor of the school has been given notice of this information by a parent of the pupil.

Regulation 4 amends regulation 8(1)(f)(iii) and (h)(iii) of those Regulations to require the enquiries made by a school and local authority to ascertain where a pupil is to be made jointly.

Regulation 5 amends Regulation 12 of those Regulations to require the proprietor of the school to make a return to the local authority each time a pupil is added to the register which must contain all the information on the register relating to that pupil.

Regulation 5 also amends Regulation 12 to extend the duty to make a return to the local authority with information relating to a pupil being deleted from the school’s register under some of the circumstances in regulation 8(1) to all circumstances in which a pupil is removed from the register. The information must include, amongst other things, any new address at which a pupil will be living and any new school which a pupil will be attending. The duty to make a return under regulation 12 no longer applies in the case of pupils removed from the register after the pupil has completed the final year of education normally provided by the school unless the local authority requests a return be made.

Regulation 6 inserts Regulation 16 into the Education (Pupil Registration) (England) Regulations 2006. Regulation 16 requires the Secretary of State to review the operation and effect of the amendments made by these Regulations and publish a report no later than 30 September 2019, and within every five years after that. Following a review it will fall to the Secretary of State to consider whether the Regulations should remain as they are, or be revoked or amended. A further instrument would be needed to revoke the Regulations or to amend them.

A full impact assessment of the effect that this instrument will have on the costs of business, the voluntary sector and the public sector is available from the Department for Education, Piccadilly Gate, Store Street, Manchester, M1 2WD, telephone 01616001247.
