Curriculum and Assessment (Wales) Act 2021

Additional Learning Needs and Education Tribunal (Wales) Act 2018

250.Section 14 of the Additional Learning Needs and Education Tribunals (Wales) Act 2018 (“the 2018 Act”) places a duty on local authorities to prepare and maintain an individual development plan (IDP) for a child or young person the authority has decided has additional learning needs. Where a pupil at a maintained school has an IDP prepared by the local authority that includes provision disapplying or modifying any curriculum implementation requirements under the Act (see section 41), paragraph 74 of this Schedule prohibits the local authority from directing the governing body of the school to prepare or maintain an IDP for the pupil.

251.Paragraph 75 of Schedule 2 makes a minor amendment to Schedule 1 to the 2018 Act by repealing an amendment to section 19 of the 1996 Act. This amendment is no longer required as a result of the amendments made by paragraph 3, which restrict the application of section 19 of the 1996 Act to England only.
