Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)

These Regulations amend the Education (Assisted Places) Regulations 1997 (“the 1997 Regulations”) in respect of a school year beginning on or after 1st September 2004. The 1997 Regulations prescribe arrangements for pupils who are eligible to continue to hold assisted places at independent schools by virtue of section 2 of the Education (Schools) Act 1997, notwithstanding the abolition of the assisted places scheme by section 1 of that Act.

The deduction to be made in “relevant” income in respect of dependent relatives under regulation 10(4) and (6) of the 1997 Regulations is increased from £1,500 to £1,540.

Where “relevant” income is at or below a particular level, fees are to be wholly remitted. That level is increased from £11,626 to £11,935, with corresponding increases in the extent of the remission where “relevant” income exceeds that sum.

(1)

1997 c. 59. Section 3 is amended by section 130 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 (c. 31).

(2)

The functions of the Secretary of State under section 3 were transferred to the National Assembly for Wales by the National Assembly for Wales (Transfer of Functions) Order 1999 (S.I. 1999/672).
