The Order brings section 55 of the Education and Inspections Act 2006 (the 2006 Act) into force on 9 February 2009.

Section 55 of the 2006 Act amends section 71 of the School Standards and Framework Act 1998 so as to enable sixth form pupils at maintained schools to withdraw from religious worship and so as to require a governing body to make arrangements for giving sixth form pupils who are boarders, if they so request, a reasonable opportunity to attend religious education or worship in accordance with the tenets of a particular religion. It also requires regulations to make provision enabling sixth form pupils at maintained special schools to withdraw from religious worship.
