Learning and Skills (Wales) Measure 2009


Section 46 Regulations in connection with the operation of the local curriculum

133.Currently, education legislation tends to be drafted on the assumption that a child will receive the majority of his or her education at a single site. Under the local curricula formed under Parts 1 and 2 of this Measure, this will often not be the case. For example, a child could receive a significant amount of his or her education at a school other than that at which he or she is registered.

134.The purpose of this section is to allow regulations to be made so that the existing body of education legislation will apply in an appropriate fashion in respect of children who receive education at more than one educational institution. For example, regulations under this section could specify that, for the purposes of legislation governing meetings with a child’s parents, the child is to be treated as a registered pupil at more than one school in order that the parents have the right to meet with those responsible for the child’s education at both schools.

Section 47 Minor and consequential amendments

135.This section introduces the Schedule which contains minor and consequential amendments.

Section 48 Orders and regulations

136.This section provides that any power of the Welsh Ministers to make regulations or an order under the Measure is exercisable by statutory instrument. It also provides that any regulations made under the Measure may be annulled by a resolution of the National Assembly for Wales.

Section 49 Commencement

137.This provides for the Measure to be brought into force by order of the Welsh Ministers. It permits the Measure to be brought into force at different times for different purposes.

Section 50 Short title

138.This confers the title of the Measure – the Learning and Skills (Wales) Measure 2009.
