Curriculum and Assessment (Wales) Act 2021

Section 82 - General interpretation

183.Section 82 defines certain terms used in the Act. It also provides that terms used in the Act that are defined in the 1996 Act will have the meaning given in the 1996 Act. As a result, various terms used in the Act have the meaning set out in the 1996 Act (for example, ‘school’ and ‘parent’).

184.But if a term used in the Act, which is defined in the 1996 Act, is given another meaning by the Act itself, or by the Legislation (Wales) Act 2019, that other meaning, rather than the 1996 Act definition, will apply for the purposes of the Act.
