Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Education (School Day and School Year) (Wales) Regulations 2000 (“the 2000 Regulations”). The 2000 Regulations make provisions about the length of the school day and the school year and further make provision for the number of school sessions that may be devoted to the training of teachers in school teachers' appraisal, the school teachers' pay system and school staffing structures.

Regulation 3 of the 2000 Regulations is amended so as to reduce the length of the 2001—2002 school year by one day, from 380 sessions to 378 sessions, for schools maintained by a local education authority and special schools not so maintained. That regulation will allow those schools to take an extra day’s holiday during the 2001—2002 school year in relation to the Queen’s golden jubilee bank holiday which falls during the half-term holiday week on Monday 3 June 2002.

A new regulation 5 is added to the 2000 Regulations which increases the maximum number of sessions which may be devoted wholly or mainly to training by two sessions in the 2002—2003 school year for training relating to the teaching of pupils in the second and third key stages.
